You Heard It Here First - Curling Edition

Brad Gushue - who in 2006, was the skip of the first Canadian men's rink to win a gold medal at a Winter Olympics - got his first big win several years before, when he won the Canadian Jr. Men's competition in 2001. He went on to win the World Junior Championship that same year.

Now, the Stacie Devereaux rink from St John's has become the first team from Newfoundland & Labrador to win the Canadian Junior Women's Champtionship. And they did in dramatic style, scoring 3 to come from behind in the 10th and final end against a game squad from Manitoba.

Congratulations to Stacie and her team. Here's hoping that history repeats itself, and we see her getting a gold medal placed 'round her neck not only at this year's World Championship, but 3 years from now in Vancouver!

More later.
