In most cases, our first true competitor was not from a rival school or an opposing club team. A first-time competition is born when a sibling is added to the family – Gandhi can attest to this. Watching his sister play hockey from the sidelines, he naturally wanted to outshine her performance. What began as friendly family competition turned into a passion at age 15. Gandhi grew and excelled in his skill level at the Southgate Hockey Club to join the National Team in 2012. With a bronze medal finish at the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival to his name, Gandhi looks to add more hardware to his resume with the National Team.
