Go World: Team VISA’s Brent Hayden

Comments 229 by Rebecca Bollwitt

London has done quite an admirable job with the Summer Olympics so far and it’s been heartwarming to hear all the cheers for Canada echoing from the venues. Back at home, friends, family, and spectators are gathering at homes, pubs, and restaurants to support Team Canada from afar. There’s just one week left at the Games of the 33rd Olympiad and Canadians have made quite a splash already.

Visa is currently sponsoring a handful of Canadian Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls (and some who have become champions already) as they have done for the last 26 years. One of their athletes is Mission, BC’s own Brent Hayden won bronze in the 100m freestyle last week. Shortly after Brent‘s triumphant swim, VISA issued the following congratulatory video billboard for their team member:

Back and shoulder issues continued to limit Hayden this year, but he was in great form on Wednesday, although he felt some tenderness in his back during the morning. “My back was not doing good today either,” said Hayden. “[I had] three spinal adjustments trying to get it to settle down.”

At the turn, he was second heading toward the finish. He admitted to feeling pain in the last final 25 metres although he didn’t show it. Hayden maintained his composure to edge two-time London gold medallist Yannick Agnel of France by 0.04th of a second to fulfill his Olympic dream.
[CBC News]

Shaved bald, tattooed with the superman symbol on his chest and the Olympic rings below the maple leaf on his back, this giant of a man from Mission, B.C. took the last shot at swimming glory he will ever have and made the most of it, fighting every stroke for a bronze medal in the race that crowns the fastest man in the water.

    Interestingly enough my favourite Olympic moment so far was watching Brent Hayden win bronze. I found myself holding my breath the entire race and felt such pride on being Canadian after he fulfilled his Olympic dream!

  18. LindaMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 11:43am PDT

    Favourite moments so far have been the opening ceremonies – the music was spetacular – and seeing the women’s soccer team do so well.

  31. JaneMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 3:25pm PDT

    Canada vs United States in women’s soccer and the heartbreaking loss. Christine Sinclair is without a doubt the world’s best female soccer player!

    Murray’s win over Federer. And the little boy in the stands who reached out to give him a hug.

  50. KCMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 5:29pm PDT

    Fav moment so far was watching our Canadian women’s soccer team bump Team GB on their own turf. Go Canada!

    There are many great Canadian moments during this year’s summer olympics.
    It is difficult to choose one moment out of so many great Canadian moments;
    but if I have to choose then I will say today/yesterday’s olympic football game between Canadian women’s team and USA women’s team. When Canada’s Christine Sinclair continued to score to put Canadian women’s soccer team in winning position, I was so proud of our Canadian team and Christine Sinclair. However, as they lose at the end due to unfair rulings from umpire, it was frustrating and upsetting for both players and audience. Nonetheless, I want to say, Canadian women’s football team did a great job and we are all proud of their performance 🙂

  61. TracyMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 8:13pm PDT

    Usain Bolt’s gold medal win!

  62. LauraMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 10:02pm PDT

    My favourite Olympics moment has to be the men’s and women’s 8 person rowing. Both races were well earned silvers and so close to gold!

  63. PatriciaMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 10:14pm PDT

    Although they did not win the game, the Canadian women’s soccer game. WOW, what a game. So proud of our team!

  64. IainMonday, August 6th, 2012 — 10:26pm PDT

    My favourite moment so far was the Opening Ceremony, especially the James Bond scene.

  70. Randy CarterTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 2:02am PDT

    My favorite moment so far was the ENTIRE Women’s Soccer Semi-Final game between the USA and Canada. Wow! That’s the type of competition that the Olympics are all about. Controversy or not. Those athletes laid it all on the pitch for 120+ minutes!

  71. NinaTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 2:40am PDT

    Anything diving! It is amazing how much they do in such a short amount of time!

  84. Jennifer WTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 7:52am PDT

    There have been so many great Olympic moments so far. My favourite moment altogether would be when Phelps and the US men’s swim team won the gold for the 4×100 medley relay. It was exhilarating to see Phelps, such an amazing athlete, end his career on such a high note – not to mention that all of those men on the team are a treat for the eyes. =)
    My favourite Canadian Olympic moment so far was when the Canadian rowing team won the silver. The look on their faces after they finished so strongly was fantastic!

  85. IrisTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:01am PDT

    The women’s soccer game Canada VS USA yesterday was incredible to watch with my daughter. They played with such heart and made me so proud!

  86. steffani cameronTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:02am PDT

    I actually really loved Andy Murray’s victory over Federer, and also Usain Bolt’s moment. For Canada, Rosie MacLennan was a great moment, and the men’s 8 stunning turn-around to win the Silver in rowing.

    Heck, there’s a great moment every day! 🙂

    That’s why we watch ’em.

  87. Lelainia LloydTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:02am PDT

    When James and Pistorious exchanged race bibs. That was such a beautiful moment, one of mutual respect and admiration. I will NEVER forget that moment. Pistorious is absolutely courageous!

  88. RubyTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:05am PDT

  91. zaeliaTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:10am PDT

    Hard to pick one. I think all the athletes, medal or no, are amazing and it’s been a joy to watch. Watching Ryan Cochrane win silver in the men’s 1500-metre freestyle was up there for sure.

  92. Peter HTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 8:24am PDT

    That clean and jerk was wonderful

  115. HardevTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 9:47am PDT

    My favourite moment was bitter sweet.
    Christine Sinclair scoring 3 goals against Team USA (they only had 2 goals against during these games coming up to the game) – In my opinion I think that was the Gold/Bronze medal game as the winner would win the gold and the loser the bronze.
    Sadly Team Canada lost due to bad officiating and not being able keep control and possession of the ball!

  116. Lynn MontesTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 9:54am PDT

    Christine Sinclair’s hat trick during the match with the US was amazing! As was the trampoline gold, Brett’s bronze and oh oh oh oh soooooooo many others!!! AWESOME!!

  117. JuliaTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 9:55am PDT

    The Queen getting escorted by none other than 007 James Bond (Daniel Craig… yum) in the Opening Ceremonies!

  134. Michael KwanTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 11:55am PDT

    Seeing South Africa’s “Blade Runner” was neat, but I think Usain Bolt in the 100m was still the biggest moment so far… that or Sinclair’s hat trick.

  135. BelindaTuesday, August 7th, 2012 — 11:55am PDT

    Monday’s Women Soccer between Canada and the US. I was up on my feet whenever the Canadian goalie caught the ball as US was about to kick the ball in.

    There have been many great, and emotional, moments at London 2012, too many to list out here. But I’m looking forward to the Closing Ceremony- for a number of reasons. 1. I can’t wait to see what Brazil have planned for the handover…it will be a teaser for Rio 2016. and 2. All the brilliant, amazing, inspiring athletes who have spent the last 2 weeks putting on one of the greatest shows on earth, FINALLY get a well deserved break! Good for them!
