Debbie McCormick's curling squad secures American Olympic bid

  • Print

BROOMFIELD, Colo. - Debbie McCormick's squad slid and swept their way to a win in the finals of the U.S. Olympic curling trials to become the first American athletes to secure spots for the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Team McCormick beat Patti Lank 8-5 in the final Saturday. McCormick sealed the win with a brilliant shot on the match's final rock, knocking two of Lank's stones out of the way.

This will be McCormick's third trip to the Winter Olympics. She also was a member of the fifth-place team in 1998 at Nagano, and the '02 squad that finished fourth in Salt Lake City.

The trials also doubled as the national championship, giving McCormick her fourth straight crown.
