Norma O'Leary of Silver Bay still remembers when she started to love the sport of curling. Almost by accident, she competed in the Olympic trials very early in her career. She was an alternate for her team and when a teammate fell ill, O'Leary had to step in and play. The stakes were high. The team was playing for the opportunity to participate in the biggest curling competition in the world.
