2019 FOR THE LOVE OF CURLING

“I love curling because it is a tough sport. You need to be in good shape mentally and physically. You also need to be good technically and have a lot of strategies. It is a sport where we are always learning. Finally, because the curling community is amazing. We are opponents on the ice but when the game is over, we are one big family!”

“Curling is a sport I’m passionate about, sure but it’s also a safe space, an inclusive space, where all of life’s issues are set aside for a few hours, with friends that last a lifetime. I feel at home on that pebbled ice, sometimes when I really needed it, and that’s why I love curling.”
