Captain Archer sometimes feels like the most blue collar Captain, drinking beer and watching sports. In the episode "Vox Sola," we learn about his love for water polo, which is a sport that doesn't seem to be highlighted in the spotlight as often as other sports.

Joelle Bekhazi was named to the junior national team at age 16, going on to compete at the 2005 and 2007 World Junior Championships. After moving up to the senior ranks, she helped Canada win silver at the 2007 and 2011 Pan American Games. Bekhazi was part of two major medal-winning teams in 2009 as Canada captured a first-ever silver in the FINA Water Polo World League followed by silver at the FINA World Championships. Among her individual accomplishments are being named to the All-Star Team at the 2010 FINA World Cup and earning MVP honours at the 2013 UANA World Championship Qualification Tournament. Bekhazi played collegiately at the University of Southern California. In her first year in 2009, the Trojans lost in the NCAA final but a year later they brought home the victory, making Bekhazi the first Canadian to ever be a part of an NCAA champion water polo team.

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Brandon-Shea Mutala, and Patrick Devlin speak with Joelle Bekhazi who is a member of the Women's Canadian National Water Polo team. We discuss the training involved, where she has traveled, and the most challenging game that she played.
