Nick Lin, Samson Hoy & William Vu Named to Team Canada U23

Four members of the Vancouver Nighthawks are going to have a busy summer on the ultimate field.

University ultimate is winding down as Major League Ultimate is preparing for its third season, and just as the MLU season comes to an end, the club season will be ratcheting up. Now four members of the Nighthawks – Evan Taylor, Nick Lin, Samson Hoy, and William Vu — have been picked to represent Canada at the Under-23 World Championships, which are being held July 12-18 in London, England.

“I’m ecstatic to be on Team Canada’s U-23 Open Team!” said Lin. “Making the team has been the main goal of my ultimate career over the last four years. There have been failures along the way, but they just provided me with motivation to work even harder. It took me a lot of training, both mental and physical, to get to the level of competition that I’m at today, and I’m sure all my teammates would tell you the same.”

“Meeting all of Team Canada’s U-23 team at the Trouble in Vegas tournament was lots of fun. It was great to meet and play with teammates from across Canada, since we are unlikely to be able to train together again before Worlds.”

“I’m looking forward to the entire event in London, but what I want the most is to compete in the finals and bring home some gold for Canada.”
