Tim Brand (hockey) missed out on selection for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018 and is keen to make up for lost time. The Sydney striker, who plays for NSW Pride in the Hockey One competition, was part of the national development squad in 2017 before being elevated to the senior group during a strong year in 2018 with NSW which included winning the under-21 national championships. He had to cut short a family holiday to Europe to link up with the national team, making his international debut against Germany. Brand cites his Ryde-Hunters Hill 2015 club premiership win and the Tokyo Olympic silver medal as two of his career highlights, but that list will certainly grow with a Commonwealth Games gold medal in Birmingham. Tim was born the Netherlands to a Dutch father and Australian-Chinese mother and came to Australia when he was three years old with the family moving to Sydney’s northern beaches where he grew up. He recently completed Bachelor of Actuarial Studies at University of NSW, studying long distance from national team’s training base in Perth.
