It has been awhile since the #TwineTime blog added a new face to the place. A little wham to the fam. Worry no longer #curling fans, I am hear to put some more yak in your hack!
Ok, I may have been spending some time with school age children at work playing rhyme tyme...my apologies. But I do think you should be excited about our newest #TwineTime fam member: J.D. Lind! J.D. is a curler. J.D. is a coach. J.D. has been to one Olympics and is preparing for another in only a few months time. The unique story behind J.D. though is his coaching and Olympics experience do not come with a maple leaf on his back but rather the "Circle of the Sun".
The #growthesport theme has been elevated this season with #TeamWorld stepping up their game on the #gsoc circuit. #TeamCanada owning the world stage. And #TeamUpset making history along the way. While at the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships in Lethbridge this season, I had the opportunity to sit down with #TeamJapan coach J.D. Lind and talk about his transition from curling athlete to curling coach, his new role with a new nation, how he has seen a #growthesport movement and the excitement surrounding the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Get ready to see the sport through the mixture of a curler/coaching lens and welcome the first coach to the #TwineTime family. Let's go #BetweenTheSheets with J.D. Lind!
