We all love an “underdog” story which leads to success and this one is no different!

This has taken some time to put this together so I am so excited to finally share this with you…

One of our Hockey Performance Academy members, Bruno Sousa has recently been part of the Brazilian national team who have qualified for the Rio Olympics in 2016. This is despite Brazil only being ranked 37th in the world. A dream come true for Bruno & his team.

In the video interview I did with Bruno; he shares phenomenal stories, insights, his personal experience as well as some tips and advice for players who want to get more out of their game and play at a higher level.
