  • JOHN MORRIS - CURLING

    Finalists Special Guests Past Winners Ticket Order Form


    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS The future of Canadian men's curling is in good hands with John Morris of the Ottawa Curling Club. Morris became the first Canadian skip and the fourth overall to go undefeated at the world junior championships in Thunder Bay culminating with a 5-3 victory over Garry MacKay of Scotland in the championship game.

    "It would have been disappointing going undefeated (during the round-robin) and then having a setback in the playoffs," said Morris whose crewmates were Craig Savill of Kanata, Ont., Andy Ormsby of Stayner, Ont., and Brent Laing of Meaford, Ont. "But we came out and showed everyone that we're a tough team and we battled hard."

    It was the first Canadian world junior men's title since Colin Davison of Alberta won in 1994. Morris now has a goal to become the only Canadian to win a Brier championship and a world junior championship.

    "If I stick at it, I'm pretty sure that we can make it to the Brier one day," said the 19-year- old, Sir Wilfrid Laurier University physical education student.

    Morris dedicated his victory to his seven-year-old cousin Lucy Joe Markus of Kingston, Ont., who was diagnosed with leukemia. His father Earle Morris was also a world-class curler and is the only skip in history to represent three different provinces--Ontario, Manitoba and Quebec - at the Brier.
