How It Works:
The Canadian Olympic Curling Team
Canada, with eight Olympic medals, has been a dominating force in professional curling over the last decades, only rivalled by Scandinavian teams such as Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Both the men’s and the women’s curling teams are considered favourites going into the Sochi Winter Olympics, where they hope to claim Canada’s third gold for men and second for women. The men will be represented by Brad Jacobs (skip), Ryan Fry (third), E.J. Harnden (second), Ryan Harnden (lead) and Caleb Flaxey (fifth).
