 Mike Mahood is the goaltender for the senior men's national team. His career highlights include a gold medal win over Argentina at the 1999 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg and his first major tournament appearance at the 1998 World Cup in the Netherlands. Canada finished eighth, which was a best-ever result at that point. Mahood started playing field hockey at the age of 9, and has been a member of the national squad since 1996. Away from field hockey, he has begun building furniture as a hobby, and has been besieged with requests for his 'Adirondack Chairs' in particular. He is optimistic about Canada's chances for a medal in Sydney, and is looking forward to the 2002 World Cup in Malaysia. The host country Malaysia is one the Canadian team's main rivals in the sport.
