From John Shuster's Persistence To Rachel Homan's Disappointment, Every Olympic Curler Is On A Journey From John Shuster's Persistence To Rachel Homan's Disappointment, Every Olympic Curler Is On A Journey

Last November, my team played in a World Curling Tour event. Our team couldn’t be considered “competitive”—we play about one such event a year, whereas the good ones are looking at about a dozen weeks a year. We know what we’re doing; we’re just out of shape.
