Olympic stars Hayden, Gabriele honoured

Local Olympians Brent Hayden and Teresa Gabriele were honoured with lifetime achievement awards by PacificSport Fraser Valley.

Local Olympians Brent Hayden and Teresa Gabriele were honoured with lifetime achievement awards by PacificSport Fraser Valley at its annual general meeting on May 27.

Hayden, a Mission native, is one of Canada’s most decorated swimmers. He won gold in the 100-metre freestyle at the World Aquatic Championships in 2007 and climbed the podium again with a silver medal in the same distance in 2011. He wrapped up his career with a bronze medal in the 100m free at the London Olympics last summer.

Fellow Mission native Gabriele was a mainstay with the Canadian women’s basketball program for over a decade. The 5’5″ point guard helped the national team qualify for the Olympics in 2000, and she guided the squad as far as the quarter-finals at the London Games 12 years later.
