Brent Hayden, the fastest of any Canadian swimmer, will next week be inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame.
The former UBC Thunderbird is a three-time Olympian who stepped on the podium for a bronze medal at the 2012 London Games after he finished third in a dramatic 100-metre freestyle final. His time of 47.80 seconds made him the first Canadian to ever medal in the marquee race. He is also a 2007 world champion in the same event.
Along with Hayden, who is from Mission, the 2013 inductees include one of the greatest lacrosse scorers in Canadian history, Kevin Alexander from Victoria, golf veteran Dawn Coe-Jones who is from Campbell River and record-setting national rugby player Robert 'Ro' Hindson from Naramata.
