Kelowna’s Capozzi Wins Gold

Posted in Featured, Shows

Kelowna’s Christi Capozzi got the Christmas gift she was hoping for, a gold medal at the World University Games in Italy.

The Kelowna Minor Hockey graduate and current UBC Thunderbird captain used her veteran leadership  to help Team Canada sweep the tournament on route to the gold medal, outscoring the opposition 77-2.

Canada opened the Games with a 21-0 drubbing of Spain to set the tone.  The only goals they would allow would be to the USA and Japan.

The gold medal match saw Canada shutout Team Russia 5-0.

The Ryan Watters Show talks with Christi about her experience on the ice and her favourite experiences away from the rink …
