Getting to know Goldline Ambassador Marc Kennedy

Posted on February 1, 2013 by Andrew. There have been 0 comments.

With the men’s provincial playdowns starting across the country this week and next, Goldline would like to highlight one of the curlers who will be hoping to gain a berth into the Brier. Marc Kennedy is the second on the team skipped by Kevin Martin. At just 31 years of age, he has an Olympic gold medal, 2 Brier titles and a world championship under his belt. He’s a heavy hitter out on the ice, and is one of the strongest sweepers in the game.

Just the other week, the Edmonton Journal ran a great article on Marc and his brother Glen.

Goldline extends its best wishes to the entire Martin team who begin play for the Alberta title in Leduc on February 6!
