Madison Curling Club members Kirk Black and Justin Marshall will represent Team USA at the upcoming 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. Congratulations to both club members! Wish them luck on their way to South Korea!
Black, 48, who lives in San Antonio, Texas, for part of the year and Madison, Wisconsin, during the curling season to train, began curling just a few years ago but has quickly excelled. Marshall, 31, was a member of the last two world championship teams. Both will be making their Paralympic debuts.
Up next for the newly-nominated Paralympic team will be a camp in Utica, New York, with the Scottish Paralympic team followed by the U.S. Open, where competition will include four of the 12 competing Paralympic teams. Additional camps and competitions will follow as Team USA prepares for the Paralympics.
