DILDAR Singh Mander, father of Jasmine Mander, Canadian Women’s National Team Performance Analyst, was all smiles as he celebrated the gold medal won by the women’s soccer team on Friday at the Tokyo Games.
Canada defeated Sweden 3-2 on penalty kicks after the teams finished extra time tied at one. It’s the first-ever Olympic title for the Canadian women’s soccer team. Canada won bronze at the 2012 London Games and finished third again at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Delta’s Mander earned her Canada Soccer B Licence in 2015 and is currently a Canada Soccer A Licence candidate. She most recently served as a coach in the Vancouver Whitecaps FC BMO Academy System, which is part of the Regional EXCEL centres program in British Columbia, since 2014.
She was part of the U-15 and U-17 Women’s National Youth Teams from 2010 to 2012 and was also part of the National Training Centre / REX program in British Columbia. Mander was the captain of the University of British Columbia Women’s Soccer Team that won the 2015 CIS National Championship.
