Favourite Quote: “Hakuna Matata”
She was once told she was too rough for soccer…now she is a rugby Olympic bronze medalist. Brittany Benn has played a huge part in Canada’s success since joining the sevens roster. She made the switch to sevens in 2015 and hasn’t looked back. A defensive stalwart and a natural leader, she has been an engine for the Canadians in 2016-17. She is a top ten try-scorer this year and is showing no signs of slowing down. When she isn’t on the field, she enjoys the great outdoors including hiking, snowboarding, and camping.
