The Hockey Show - Episode 287

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back with a special show! Normally, we try to book guests who have amazing stories or careers that have taken those players down interesting paths, but tonight is something completely different. Beans and I often talk about the people behind the scenes for these amazing athletes, but tonight we're going to speak to two women who literally raised gold medalists. At the time, they probably didn't know they'd be gold medalists at some point in their lives, but they can now say their daughters are gold medal-winning hockey players!

Tonight, Beans and I are honoured, humbled, privileged, and proud to welcome into the studio Carla Sharman and Karen Taraschuk, the mothers of Alanna Sharman and Lauren Taraschuk! Alanna and Lauren won the U SPORTS National Women's Ice Hockey gold medal in London, Ontario last week, and we got to meet Carla and Karen in London where they were cheering their daughters on to victory! These two ladies are exceptional people, and we're excited to speak with them about Alanna and Lauren as little hockey tykes, the costs and sacrifices that go into raising elite hockey players, and just how proud they are of their daughters. We'll hear about a great initiative from Carla during the show, and we may even have a surprise for them as well! Tune in tonight as we meet Carla Sharman and Karen Taraschuk and get their perspectives on the tournament in London where their daughters were crowned best in the nation!
