CCA provides unique opportunity to own a piece of Olympic history

The Canadian Curling Association (CCA) and Innovative Sports Ltd. have partnered together to offer curling fans a very special opportunity.

At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the Canadian Olympic Team made history in front of millions of euphoric fans who cheered them on from coast to coast. During these unforgettable Olympic Games, Canadian athletes had unprecedented podium results particularly the Canadian Olympic Curling Teams. The men’s team (Kevin Martin, John Morris, Marc Kennedy, Ben Hebert, Adam Enright) beat out Norway for the gold medal while the women’s team (Cheryl Bernard, Susan O’Connor, Carolyn Darbyshire, Cori Bartel, Kristie Moore) won silver after a narrow loss to Sweden in the finals.
