Silver Lining for Jacobs
Canadian Olympic Team Mark

By cdnolympicteam

Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie rink consisting of third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden, lead Ryan Harnden fought all the way back from fourth place position in round-robin play to reach the final of the World Men’s Curling Championship in Victoria, BC.

Unfortunately for the skipper, the team’s great run in its first appearance at Worlds would fall just short losing the gold medal match to Sweden by a score of 8-6.

“I’m proud of the guys,” said Jacobs. “This was such an amazing experience for us. We’re going to hold our heads high. We fought as hard as we could. Congratulations to Sweden — they played awesome.”

In winning silver, Jacobs’ secures a quota spot for Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. However, what team will fill that spot has yet to be determined.

The Canadian Curling Association will be hosting a Pre-Trials Event (November 5-10, 2013) in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON and an Olympic Trials (December 1-8, 2013) in Winnipeg, MB in order to determine who will head to Sochi for an opportunity at defending the Olympic gold medal won in 2010 by Kevin Martin (Killiam, AB) and his rink.
