Prior to the start of the trials, Walker said in an interview with EverythingGP that the Canadian Olympic curling rinks were “the best curling event.”

Walker added that her team felt confident initially and now feel even more confident as Beijing approaches now that they have qualified for the Olympics.

“We’ve had a solid season so far. We’ve won three of the four events we’ve played and we’re putting it all together. We are playing well, doing everything well and training hard, ”he said.

“We’re going to take a break here, enjoy it, and then start preparing for the Olympics in February.”

Sunday was also a special night for Geoff, as he was able to spend the victory with his wife Laura. Laura has also curled in the trials for the past 10 days, but couldn’t secure a spot.

“It was great to have Laura here competing and to stay for the final and watch. Unfortunately my parents were taking care of our son so they couldn’t do it but they were able to watch on TV. It was great to have him here.

Walker and Team Gushue will be on hiatus until January before returning to the ice. There are a few Grand Slam curling tournaments that they will participate in before heading to Beijing.

Walker mentioned that his team will likely create their own kind of bubble before heading to the Olympics in late January.

The Olympic curling tournament is scheduled to begin on February 2, two days before the opening ceremonies on February 4.

Walker wanted to thank all of his fans in the Peace Region for their warm messages.
