O’Connor living the dream
Sheffield Steelers defender Ben O’Connor is living the dream as he prepares to begin another winter Olympic qualifying campaign.
The 31-year-old will play a key role for Pete Russell's men when the tournament begins in Nottingham today, GB facing Romania in their first game.
And O & # 39; Connor, participating in his fourth Olympic competition, takes nothing for granted given the quality of the opposition that awaits him, with Estonia and Hungary to come this week-end.
"C & "It’s every athlete’s dream to play at the Olympics and it’s fantastic, we have a chance to qualify every four years," he said.
"We know that a difficult task awaits us in the coming days because there are no easy games internationally.
"It's great to see all the GB boys again. Most of us fight against each other throughout the season, but we just click when we meet to put on the Great Britain jersey.
"As always, the spirit in the camp is good and we all focused on our first game against Romania."
