SOCHI — Canada is officially on top of the curling world.
By Brad Jacobs (Team Canada skip) — This is a night I’ll remember for the rest of my life; that’s pretty obvious! The whole night couldn’t have gone any better.
By Jennifer Jones (Team Canada skip) — The game has been over for a couple of hours now and I still can’t believe it when I hear the words “Olympic Champion.”
By E.J. Harnden (Team Canada second) — This is an amazing feeling, to know that we have already won an Olympic medal.
By Dawn McEwen (Team Canada lead) — The game has been over for around an hour now and I’m still shaking. This is so exciting!
By Ryan Fry (Team Canada third) — We had a great practice today to get ready for the semifinal on Wednesday against China.
By Jill Officer (Team Canada second) —We had a good end to the round robin tonight against South Korea. I found out during the media interviews that we’re the first women’s team to ever go unbeaten in the round robin at the Olympics.
By Ryan Harnden (Team Canada lead) — Oh, man. My heart is beating pretty quick right now! But it was pretty calm on that last sweep. Brad knew his weight, and we just cleaned it in there, pretty much.
By Elaine Dagg-Jackson (Team Canada national women’s coach) — I knew coming into Sochi that our women’s team would be a contender, but I think they are even better than I expected them to be.
By E.J. Harnden (Team Canada second) — The grinding has paid off! We’re in the playoffs, and that’s a big load off our shoulders. This morning’s game against the U.S. was a tough one; John’s team played very well, but we were able to make some big shots at the end for the win.
By Paul Webster (Team Canada Team Leader) — This is my third Olympics with the Canadian curling teams, and in many ways it’s already very rewarding.
By Rick Lang (Team Canada national men’s coach) — Today’s game against Great Britain had a little bit of everything, but I was really proud of the guys to hang in there for the win.
