Linda Moore was always willing to have an open mind.
After losing the Scotties final in 1986, instead of a direct entry
to the first ever Olympic Trials, the Moore rink had to participate
in the evaluation camp before qualifying to compete. When
told in advance they could be split up as a result, rather than
battle the process they went ahead and kept a positive
attitude. The result was a gold medal at the 1988 Olympic
Winter Games in Calgary. Linda reflects on that experience
and the lessons that helped get them to that moment. We cover
from Linda's early days as a junior in North Vancouver through to
her years as a broadcaster with TSN. Linda shares some Ray Turnbull
stories, her thoughts on shooting percentages and explains what led
to her departure from the booth.
