Golden Gushue: A Curling Story is the fascinating account of how Brad Gushue and his team captured the hearts of their country and an Olympic gold medal in Torino, Italy. This book tracks their remarkable success story from the creation of Team Gushue to their celebrated victory. Its pages are filled with colour photos, interviews, and behind-the-scenes stories, along with the reactions of reporters, other curlers, and proud Newfoundlanders on the success of their #1 curling team. Well-known Atlantic Canadian sports journalist Alex J. Walling tracks the rise of Team Gushue and recounts the most special moments of their victory: Brad Gushue''s call to his mother, who was unable to come to Italy because of chemotherapy treatments, immediately after winning; how Mike Adam stepped down from his position because he agreed that the team had a better chance of winning with Russ Howard in his place; and how all of Newfoundland stopped what they were doing that afternoon to see their hometown team take on Finland and win the gold. Golden Gushue is the perfect souvenir for those who want to know more about Brad and his team and for Canadians and Newfoundlanders alike who are filled with pride at the success of their golden boys.
