Overview
Canada's greatest curling champion opens up about her extraordinary career and life
In every sport there is one name that stands above all others. In curling, there can be none other than Colleen Jones. When the sport was still developing, Colleen was pioneering the kind of play and dedication that would propel the sport forward. She was only nineteen years old when she won her first provincial championship, and she became the youngest skip, at age twenty-two, ever to win the Canadian women's curling championship: the Tournament of Hearts. She went on to win it a total of six times, with an unprecedented four in a row in the early 2000s. With her two world championships in the same timeframe, no other competitor has matched her record.
In "Throwing Rocks at Houses," Colleen Jones discusses her start in curling and her remarkable career--from the pure joy of the game for a large family in Halifax to outworking her competition through will and resilience. But as a successful broadcaster with the CBC, and mother of two, Colleen has strived for success in all parts of life and has insight and stories to share on building a healthy work-life balance. And health is very important: after a serious illness that nearly brought about the worst, Colleen has a renewed love of life and a powerful message about achieving meaningful, personal success.
" Throwing Rocks at Houses" is a candid, charming and thoughtful story about learning to value what matters most in life. Colleen Jones shares her unique perspective and reassures us that even the hardest working person can learn to breathe a little lighter.
