Brandon Tang

Brandon Tang is a former hockey player, most recently playing at the prep school level at Milton Academy in the ISL. While COVID seemed to have stopped him from further pursuing the goals that the past 12 years of hockey had accumulated to, he made sure to stay ready for any opportunity. With a few months of summer training, Brandon was able to walk on to the UofT track and field team as a short sprinter where he and the team would later finish second at national championships and Brandon would be named an academic all Canadian. He is currently a second year on the team studying to become a computer science specialist and statistics major. While the path to his current position may seem unconventional, Brandon embraces the idea of being different. He takes pride in being a high achieving student all while being an Asian athlete in two sports where very few Asians are seen playing, especially at the highest levels. Brandon follows after his parents who inspire and support him the most. As immigrants from China, they came to Canada with nothing and knew nobody. However, their hard work and determination has provided the opportunities for Brandon to play sports and gain long lasting life lessons.
