A member of the Pacific Storm Club in Vancouver, Sue Gardiner is now
studying at Concordia University in Montreal. She has been part of five
medal-winning teams at two national club championship over the past three
years. She's been a a member of the junior team since 1996 and says her
silver medal at the 1999 world junior championship Italy, was her most
important sporting achievement before making the Olympic team.
Originally she wasn't on the team but the International Olympic Committee
allowed each country to add two more players in June.
"I'm very excited," said Gardiner. "Since the coach named the nine
forwards (the goaltenders have not yet been selected) I found it hard to
pursue the training. I even thought about quitting and going home to B.C.
But now it's great to see me compensated for the all the efforts. "
