Kamloops skater helps push Canadian relay team into 3,000-metre final
Marc Weber, The Province - October 26, 2008
Away from the ice, Jessica Hewitt doesn't always have her wits about her. On it, though, she's proving quite alert. [...]
Her reaction time in the relay, where there are numerous crucial exchanges -- basically pushes -- was anything but slow. She ended up skating the last two laps, too, as Canada edged the Americans by 6/100ths of a second.
"I knew if I nailed that last exchange we'd be in the running to qualify for the final," she said. "I just tried my hardest and it was really exciting. I couldn't really hear because it was so loud."
