Gerry Peckham, Canadian curling's long-time Manager of High Performance, may be down but he's not out.
Peckham was felled by a heart attack on or about July 5/6, and is now resting at home. He's had an angioplasty and also has a cardiac shunt inserted into a remaining blocked artery, which will be dealt with further in the coming weeks.
The key driver of Canada's National Team program and many other HP files before and since official Olympic status was achieved in 1998, Peckham's deft hand is no doubt still on his computer mouse... despite what must be fairly serious relaxation orders from his doctors.
All the best to Gerry on his road to recovery!
