What do Eve Muirhead, Kalynn Park, Thomas Ulsrud and Chelsea Carey all have in common? They have all said that the curler they most love to follow on Twitter is @BennyHeebz (aka Ben Hebert).
This week’s featured Goldline ambassador is the lead on the team skipped by Kevin Martin. Ben Hebert has achieved much success out on the curling ice, having won a gold medal at the world junior championships, 2 Briers, a gold and silver at the world championships, and a gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, as well as numerous other curling events and titles. The Martin team recently won the Alberta provincial playdowns, thereby earning the opportunity to play for another Brier title in front of a hometown crowd.
Ben was featured recently in the YouTube series “Cullen and a Curler”; check it out to see what Ben had to say.
We wish Ben and the rest of the Martin team the best of luck as they prepare for the Brier in Edmonton, Alberta in March.
