Canadian Women's Olympic Hopes Come Down To Clash With Hosts Great Britain

The British have built their team with players from around the world and have a Canadian connection: Point guard Rachel Vanderwal is from Hamilton. She qualified to play for Great Britain through her mom, a native of Merseyside. Vanderwal plays in the Irish league. Assistant coach Ken Shields was the long-time coach of Canada’s national men’s team and the University of Victoria squad.
