Brad Gushue      

Canadian Olympic Curling Champion

Brad Gushue skipped his team to a 2006 Olympic Gold in Torino, Italy – the first in men's curling for Canada and the first ever for Newfoundland. In addition to being an Olympic Gold Medalist, he is a two-time world junior champion, ten-time provincial champion and a national junior gold, silver and bronze medalist. Brad and his team were awarded the 2006 Canadian team of the year and Brad has been awarded Newfoundland Male athlete of the year on two occasions (2005, 2006).

In curling, the skip is the team leader who decides the strategy and "calls the ice". A gifted leader, Brad has inspired ordinary people everywhere to aim high and achieve. He attributes his own success to making the best choices, commitment, enthusiasm – and compassion. Brad inspires and motivates with his straightforward style.

Brad is just as busy off the ice as he is on it! Recently, he was awarded an honorary doctorate, the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador and he serves as the honorary chairperson of the Newfoundland Cancer Care Foundation. He is involved in other charities, such as KidSport and Right to Play. Brad regularly speaks to groups about what it takes to make it...again and again.
