BEIJING – It’s a bronze medal for Team Gushue and Canada in Olympic curling.  Gushue defeated  the defending Olympic champion, John Shuster, and Team USA 8-5 in the 10th end to earn his second Olympic medal.

“That was the toughest game I think I’ve ever played. It was hard,” said Gushue who had to bounce back after losing the semi final match to Sweden 5-3. “Its easy when you’re playing well but its hard on this stage when  you’re struggling. “

It was a perfect birthday gift for Brett Gallant who celebrated his 32nd birthday with an Olympic medal. “It’s a really good feeling to end off this way… I think the bronze is going to feel pretty special once the sting of [not winning] the gold wears off,” said Gallant.

Team Gushue – Brad Gushue, Skip. Geoff Walker, Lead. Brett Gallant second. Marc Kennedy fifth.

Mark Nichols broke down as he hugs Brad Gushue. “You’re the best ever” Nichols said, fighting back tears. Gushue said the same thing. Mark Nichols broke down as he hugs Brad Gushue. “You’re the best ever” Nichols said, fighting back tears. Gushue said the same thing.
