Project Description


Pearl Edmanson Borgal never met a sport she couldn’t master.
Born in 1911, Pearl’s athleticism early on made her a natural champion at every sport she tried, from hockey and basketball to individual pursuits such as swimming, speed skating and golfing.
Her talents extended beyond the rink, pool and court, however, and Pearl excelled as a coach, sports promoter, organizer and broadcast personality, one of Canada’s first women to host a radio program.
