Personal: Son of Raj and Denise Gandhi...Siblings are Camille, Lily and Joe...Nickname is Mo...Began playing field hockey in 2000...Game Day Mantra: "Prove them wrong."...Favorite Sports Quote: "When you want to succeed like you want to breathe, that's when you'll be successful."...Best Words of Advice: "Tough times never last but tough people do."
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.
