Paul Wettlaufer picked up the game of field hockey 12 years ago after a
friend from England introduced him to it. He had been playing little
league baseball, but found field hockey much more exciting. He feels that
the team learned a whole lot about being careful and dealing with conflicts
such as those at the 1998 Commonwealth Games. It was then his first major
tournament, and he looks forward to being able to play at every major field
hockey tournament such as the Olympics, the World Cup, and the Champions
Trophy. The North Vancouver native enjoys cooking, and has been working as
a chef at Earls for the past five years.
