Episode 147 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features Team Canada goalie Kristen Campbell as she prepares for the 2022 Olympics, and a bonus chat with her sports vision specialist, Dr. Chris Woo.
In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Campbell catches us up on what life is like with the centralized Canadian National Team preparing for the upcoming Beijing Games, including a shutout in Finland in her first game with the senior women's team, as well as an adversity laden path to this point that includes having her first NCAA team cancelled by the University of North Dakota, and her second chance at the University of Wisconsin ended early by the pandemic as they prepared to defend a national championship. Campbell also goes in depth on all the things she's done to improve along the way, from working with a long list of coaches, to leaving no stone unturned off the ice, whether is sports psychology and working with Pete Fry, or sports vision training with Dr. Woo.

In his segment, Dr. Woo, a goalie himself growing up, gives us some background into the different types of vision, how he examines athletes for sports-specific vision - it’s far more than just wanting to be 20/20 - and some insight into the kind of training that athletes like Campbell undergo for peak vision performance.
