the canadian women’s soccer team had the biggest moment in its history defeating sweden for an olympic gold medal they did this alongside christine sinclair their captain who holds the record for most international goals scored by any football player fresh off her gold medal winning performance she’s teamed up with a cause that hits close to home you said it wasn’t going to sink in until you saw your family now that you’ve been home for a bit how you feeling still hasn’t sunk in no obviously you know to see my family and celebrate with them was very important and special and you know it takes a lot more than just myself to to get to that uh point and it was good to be able to celebrate with my family and support system and all the people i loved and seeing them i think my niece has worn the metal more than i have now so i think she’s claiming it in the gold medal game against sweden they got on the scoreboard quite early you’re no stranger to the pressure of course but for some of those younger players did you have to sort of reassure them what was the message at halftime you know at half at halftime there wasn’t like panic or anything this team fights we scratch we claw we we fight and never give up and we knew that we were gonna get our chance and the second half we came out we were a different team we didn’t really change much it was more just like an attitude shift canada is the only top 10 ranked country that doesn’t have a pro women’s soccer league and it’s clear it’s clear that talent pool exists now fresh off a gold medal do you think this will attract enough attention to push a domestic league and bridge that gap in canadian women’s soccer you know if it doesn’t then we have a problem because if three olympic medals a gold medal doesn’t do that i’m not sure what will um we’ve hosted a world cup it didn’t work um but yeah it’s i think it’s the thing that needs to happen next now let’s talk about a cause that is near and dear to you burgers to beat ms day um why does this cause resonate with you so much yeah so well the whole goal of burgers to beat ms day raise money for the ms society of canada so canadians go buy your teen burgers um two dollars from every teen burger goes the ms society of canada and it’s a cause that’s close to me because my mom was diagnosed with ms when she was pregnant with my brother so 41 years ago he’s going to kill me for saying that um and yeah so i grew up in a household with a parent living with ms and i’ve seen firsthand how hard that is and the devastation it can cause an individual and a family and yeah it got to a point in my career where i wanted to be able to do more than just kick a soccer ball around so this cause jumped out to me and uh yeah just trying to raise some money for some people that need it if you’d like to participate in burgers to beat ms stay head to a w and two dollars will be donated from every teen burger purchase for city news i’m sportsnet 650’s lena satagian
