Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: Spotlight on Canada

In the latest of our Olympic Spotlight series, we look at Canada men, who will make their eighth Olympic appearance in the same city they made their first.

The Red Caribou – who made their Olympic debut at the Tokyo 1964 Games – have long been one of the giants of Pan American hockey, becoming continental champions on no less than five occasions. They have yet to achieve an Olympic finish higher than tenth, but will be aiming to top that in Tokyo, having qualified by battling past Ireland in the 2019 FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifiers to achieve back-to-back Olympic qualification for the first time since the 1980s.

Ahead of his team’s Olympic challenge, we caught up with Canada captain Scott Tupper – the talismanic defender who has played over 300 times for his country – talk all things Tokyo 2020. The interview was recorded in April 2021.
