The Richmond Olympic Oval is home to many talented athletes at all levels. Here at O Cafe, we decided to highlight an exceptional athlete once every week, and award them with “Athlete of the Week” status, as well as a $25 O Cafe Gift Card on our loyalty app. With the guidance and help of Oval and High Performance staff, we are happy to announce this week’s winner…
Name: Hazel Barthel
Sport: Ice Hockey
Team: Vancouver Angels
“Hazel Barthel is a member of the Vancouver Angels Ice Hockey Association and we have been lucky enough to have her as an oval athlete for the past several seasons. Hazel has just completed our 10 week spring skills hockey program and her focus and quiet determination in the weight room belies her competitive nature and grit she shows on the ice. With this level of resolve both on ice and in her dryland training, it was only a matter of time before Hazel was named our athlete of the week.”
Congratulations, Hazel! Keep up the great work!
