Austin Smith
Thursday, 29 august 2013

 

Austin Smith (captain of the SA men’s hockey team) is one of the best hockey players South Africa has ever produced. He was named captain of the South African Men’s Hockey Team post his stand-out performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He is a two time winner of the South African Player of the Year Award and was named alongside other world class players in the FIH World All Stars Team. Austin is an attacking midfielder and at 26 years of age has 74 international caps scoring 16 goals for South Africa. He proudly wears the #5 on his playing shirt for country, club and province.

 

After the success of Teun de Nooijers T14 line and expansion of the Princess brand into South Africa, it was only natural to partner with South Africa’s best hockey player, Austin to create his own Princess A5 line. A5 meaning “A” for Austin and the number “5” on his playing shirt. Together Princess and Austin have worked to create his signature stick the “Princess A5” which has subsequently been launched and is available for sale in South Africa.

 

Born: May 20, 1985


Current club: HC Den Bosch in Hoofdklasse
