Welcome - Sami Jo Small's Story

3 time Olympian (2 time member of gold medal winning team)

5 time World Champion
2 time World Championship MVP
Stanford University PAC-10 MVP (Men’s Hockey)
Stanford University Track Scholarship (Discus and Javelin)
Stanford University Graduate (Mechanical Engineering)
Co-Founder of the CWHL (Canadian Women's Hockey League)

"The biggest difference between myself and other Olympians 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 and then not receiving a medal in Torino forced me to focus on “ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE TEAM” above my own feelings of failure."

"I think my motto has grown to become "In life, you don’t always get to choose the role you play, but you do get to choose how you play it."

Sami Jo Small's message is about incredible success and facing one’s feelings about failure.

Showing us that a "team" needs all of its members, regardless of their role, if they are to succeed and that we can all try to do better than yesterday, try to push our own personal limits and try to play the roles that are given to us to the best of our abilities.
