Hayley has accomplished so much and helped Canada
a lot, here is why. At the Olympics Hayley has
gold medals and one silver in women's hockey
year she extend the gold medals to four in a breath
taking match against United States of America. Now Canada has won the gold medal in women's hockey four times in a row! When
she was only fifteen she got on the Canadian
Women's International team.
When she was a teenager she
went to the World Championship nine times!
In those nine times Hayley was dominating!
She brought home eight
But when the Winter Olympics was not going on she liked the Summer Olympics. In 2000 she tried out for the ladies softball team. Surprisingly she made it! She was excited to do another sport besides hockey.
This year at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics she was named flag bearer at the opening ceremony.
With all these accomplishments she has obviously
been called the best female hockey player ever!
Hayley has inspired many girls not just
in hockey, but also how she lives her life and how she is a proud Canadian. She sponsers and starts many charities. Here are the charities:
KidSport- This charity like many others helps kids play any sport they want to, even if hey don't have the money too. That's where the funding comes in. This charity gets money and then gives it to families for sports.
Right To Play- This charity helps kids know that they can do whatever they want to do. Hayley really wanted to spread the news so, she went to Africa. There she played with kids and she spread the good news.
Because I am a Girl- It helps women claim a brighter future for girls. In hockey and in other sports.
She also supports Clean Air
Champions and Spread the Net.
Hayley has a fascinating life; in fact she has her own rink in Saskatchewan named after her. Lots of her family and friends like to give her interesting nicknames. Some are Wick and Chicken Weiser. Growing up Hayley loved hockey and enjoyed playing it.When she was growing up she played on the boys' team. In fact she was the first girl to sign a contract with a men's professional NHL team. But the biggest honor she got was being named the flag bearer at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games. She was proudly leading Canada in at the opening ceremonies. After she was finished her arm was extremely tired.
