Brad Gushue talks about preping for the Olympics in Bejing, that includes living with eight other teammates in isolation, and Brad talks about the difference in going back to the Olympics after 16 years
Tobin chats with Canadian Curler and fellow Newfoundlander, Brad Gushue on his path back to the Olympics. It has been 16 years since Gushue has represented Canada at the Olympics and this time it is different. It's a pandemic, he has children, he is more experienced, and has some new faces on his team, how will that all factor in, we find out from the source.
Gushue also talks about how the team is prepping on and off the ice. His team is in isolation in Vancouver leading up to the games. All members of the team are isolated in the same house, it sounds like a great reality show, Big Brother Newfoundland. How is Brad handling it? Is he calm cool and collected or was this interview his way of getting some quiet time from the boys?
