Sochi 2014 will be ‘shop window’ for wheelchair curling
British Curling is hoping the exposure from the Sochi 2014 Paralympics helps further develop their program. Targets in most sports are not just about medals. Sport governing bodies also have to think about developing for the future.
That is exactly why British Curling Performance Director Dave Crosbee believes the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games can create a “shop window” for future wheelchair curlers. Great Britain will be 1 of 10 wheelchair curling teams competing at Sochi 2014. All 10 squads are the same teams that competed in Sochi at the 2013 World Wheelchair Curling Championships, at which Canada won their third World Title.
