What Marion AR Stoner team on the Nova Scotia title to go to the Scotties Marianne and her lead? Emma Logan was also Ernie shirt along tearful, Embrace after the game. No More Tears of pure joy look up curling inspired by Marianne’s V, Scotty’s titles that you want with me back in the day, but there’s much more to this story than that. I, like my hearing when I was 18 months old, and then I got a set of hearing aids, a cochlear implant, even with the implant Emma and noisy ice rinks was missing. Unimportant called Step, One, a low-tech solution using duct tape.

So she’ll look up to see whether it’s a hard with the green means. Go Orwell, stop for line and will the duct tape worked its the microphone? That’S been a game-changer, her teammate, Christina black is wearing it and when she speaks it goes straight into Emma’s, bright, pink implant, fac, not Challenge and then having hearing loss on top of that – and it was probably the rocky start with the communication but I’ll see you Then it just brought Focus to the team communication and in the end, we found a way to make it work. We didn’t know what Emma was missing our communication until we started using the mic and testing it out and seeing what works fast and figuring out a way for all of us, we’d better just by communicating.

But there was a lot of trial-and-error through the season. You tried it out first with me wearing it, and then we found that she was missing. All of the communication between the sweeper Emma’s appearance of the Canadian championship will Mark the first time a deaf player has played in the Scotties. The team has medical clearance to use the Mike and Emma’s determination might just Inspire others competing at such a high level of curling, with with this hearing loss that they that they see it’s not something, I can never hold them back, certainly their time.

But I question whether I could compete with the rest of the best because of this area that I was facing. It’S just something another challenge overcome and ultimately it I think it’d help wanted our team together and these tears of joy came from knowing she held nothing back.
Emma Logan is making history as the first deaf curler to compete in the Canadian women’s championship. Logan’s success stems from both the high-tech and low-tech solutions that she and her teammates have perfected.
