Queen's College teacher describes representing South Africa in Olympics hockey as 'incredible'
3:57pm Tuesday 7th August 2012 in News
Faced with a strong group of Great Britain, Pakistan, Australia, Spain and Argentina, Ian and his team mates have had a tough start to their competition.
Ian was involved in the team's 2-2 with Great Britain and several members from the college went to support him in action against Spain at the Riverbank Arena.
Although the team may not have achieved the desired results they have certainly enjoyed this memorable experience.
He said: “We have had amazing support throughout the competition and the village has been a fantastic experience as well.
“Just being around all the other athletes has been truly inspiring for us. The atmosphere in the arena has been incredible.”
Ian will be accompanying Queen's athletes on their netball and hockey tour of South Africa later in the summer before the launch of the new Queen's College Hockey Academy in late September.
