E.J-Harnden

E.J. Harnden competed alongside brother Ryan on the team that at Sochi 2014 won Canada’s third straight Olympic gold medal in men’s curling. The team skipped by his cousin Brad Jacobs posted a 7-2 round robin record in Sochi, before defeating China 10-6 in the semifinal and Great Britain 9-3 in the final.

The Harnden brothers first competed at the Brier in 2008, before joining forces with Jacobs in 2009. In 2010 they became the first Northern Ontario team to qualify for the playoffs at the Brier since 1993 and won the bronze medal. In 2013 they became the first Northern Ontario team to win the Brier since 1985 and went on to win silver at the world championships.

Despite their national and international success, Team Jacobs was not directly qualified to the Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials. They had to go through the Road to the Roar pre-trials bonspiel, from which they were the very last qualifiers for the trials. The team went on to post a perfect 7-0 record in round robin play at the Roar of the Rings, giving them a bye to the final where they beat Team John Morris 7-4.
