1. What are your thoughts on representing Team Canada at a major international event, and most specifically at the 2019 FISU Summer Universiade?

It’s an honour to represent my country and UVic, playing the sport I love on the world stage at such a renowned event. I am excited to make my country, my family, and my friends proud.

2. Is this the first time you have been selected to represent Canada on the international stage or at the Universiade? Current track record (national and/or international)?

Yes, this is the first time.

3. What are you most looking forward to in Naples, Italy outside of the competition?

I am half Italian, so doing this has kind of a weird sentimental value to me. Also, I have just seen pictures of Italy and how beautiful it is, so I am quite excited to take that in.

4. What are your personal and/or team goals for this Universiade?

We are hoping to at least medal in the tournament, and ultimately win the whole thing!

5. Do you have a nickname in your sport?

Unfortunately, Bainster, Bannister, or Bainer sometimes.

6. What are you listening to right now / what is your pump-up music?

The New Drake tracks after Toronto won the NBA Finals are alright, plus a lot of Travis Scott though for pump-up.

7. Current favorite TV show?

The Office.

8. What message would you like to share with Team Canada followers / the U SPORTS community?

Anything is possible!
