First team in the field for Tim Hortons Brier
- Updated: January 28, 2014
While qualifying playdowns are underway across the country for the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier, the Canadian men’s curling championship, Quebec’s Jean-Michel Ménard has the luxury of sitting back and waiting to see who his team will face, March 1-9 in Kamloops.
Ménard and teammates Martin Crête, Eric Sylvain and Philippe Ménard prevailed in the Quebec provincial playdowns, Jan. 19 in Val-d’Or, downing Philippe Lemay by a 7-4 score in the championship final.
It will be Ménard’s eighth appearance for Quebec at the national showdown. After winning the title in 2006 with a victory over Ontario’s Glenn Howard, the Quebec skip went on to claim the silver medal in the world championship, losing out on gold to Scotland’s David Murdoch.
