      Famed Canadian, sport psychologist Terry Orlick a long time friend and consultant with Beckie Scott introduced Beckie to the audience. Terry highlighted once again that passion and the drive to take action to achieve your goals was a common characteristic of the inductees, and warned the audience that while Beckie is a very personable and friendly person in public, look out on the ski course when she has her "game face" on.
