BRITTNEY DOS SANTOS
VC talks frisbee and swag with 6ixers and Team Canada star Brittney Dos Santos. A dynamic young handler, Dos Santos continues to grow her reputation on-field with her athletic playmaking and stifling defense. Fresh from the World Under-24 Championships in Heidelberg, look for Brittney to continue to show off her incredible offensive and defensive skills at this week’s Canadian Ultimate Championships.
Q: Best on-field moment of 2019?
A: My favourite on-field moment was our game at U24 Worlds against Colombia; there were so many incredible plays. Laura Kinoshita had a huge layout, Alyssa Mason got a sick layout D. It just felt like everyone was putting in so much effort, and it’s always a fun time playing the Colombians. I also had a big play that game that really hyped me and my team up.
Q: What’s next?
A: Now that my Team Canada commitment is over, I'm putting all my effort into 6ixers which I am super pumped about. We have such a talented team, and preparing mentally and physically for CUC is our focus right now; then USAU Regionals, and if all goes well, the USA Ultimate National Championships.
Q: Who is your ultimate hero?
A: Yes, this is cheesy, but everyone on 6ixers is my ultimate hero. Everyone is such a talented individual, and I’m so fortunate to be playing with such amazing players and people. This said, there are two people in particular who I really look up to: Lauren Kimura and Jordan Meron. Playing with Lauren has really helped me take my game to the next level. Playing with her constantly has me in awe, and she’s helped me so much whenever I struggled - she’s always there to support and guide me. Jordan is such a great role model on and off the field, as well as an amazing captain. She’s so assertive and makes everything easy for everyone else. I love how honest she is, and how she always makes an effort to connect with people on the team. I aspire to be like both of them.
