Joan McCusker takes humour
seriously. The 1998 Gold medal winning Schmirler Rink almost
never happened because Joan and Marcia were concerned that Jan and
Sandra were too intense. Eventually they agreed and
everything clicked. Their team had balance, with Joan
providing levity when it was needed most. She shares her days
growing up on the farm and learning to curl at a two sheeter.
We cover her University days, playing with sister Cathy and
the early Scotties and Olympic experiences. Joan reveals the
team's emotional turmoil the morning of the finals for the 1997
Olympic Trials and shares a few road stories as well.
