BIOGRAPHY Sami Jo Small:

Jo Small Gold Medal-Winning Goalie with the Canadian Women's Olympic Hockey Team.

night before the Olympic game, in the race to the gold medal, Sami Jo Small was told that she would not be on the ice. At first, she was devastated and angry, but eventually, she chose to rise above those feelings and embraced her new role with enthusiasmshe became a force of positivity in the dressing room, on the bench, and on the ice, and in doing so ultimately helped the team become champions. A graceful storyteller, Sami shows audiences that a "team" needs all of its members-regardless of their role-if they are to succeed

a goalie for the Canadian women's hockey team, Sami Jo has won five World Championships; twice been named championship MVP; and is a three-time Olympian, who played on two gold medal-winning teams. After a lifetime of training for the "Big Game," in the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002, Sami Jo Small never got to play in it. "The biggest difference between myself and other Olympians," says Sami, "is the whole idea of being placed in situations that were not the way I had envisioned living my Olympic dream. Not playing in the final game in Salt Lake forced me to focus on the accomplishment of the team above my own feelings.Sami Jo currently works as a motivational speaker, and is an owner of a hockey school that runs throughout four provinces. She also helped start the Canadian Women's Hockey League, where she continues to play elite hockey for the Toronto Furies.
