The loquacious, unfiltered Ben Hebert of Team Martin. September 24th, 2013

He has an Olympic gold medal, a new teammate and a love of the out turn. He’s also an astute observer of the game and offers some great insight into how the sport has evolved since his team’s march to gold in 2010. Ben and I also share our opinions on some off-season lineup changes.

We’re sold out of Fit to Curl: A Sport-Specific Guide to Training for the World’s Greatest Game by Olympic Gold Medalist John Morris but an e-book is in the works. Like us on Facebook and bookmark so you’ll know when it’s available.
