EVELETH, Minn. – This week Curl Mesabi at Eveleth is the perfect place to see the most famous curlers from across the country. This would be Duluth’s own Shuster team.

Last month at the US Olympic Trails, they beat another Northland team in Team Dropkin, led by Duluth native Korey Dropkin. The teams faced each other in a thrilling three-game series in which Chisholm native John Shuster helped his side win the last two games, winning their fifth straight title at the US Olympic Tag Team Trials.

“Being able to be positive, especially after having a 0-1 best-of-three start, that kind of mentality is absolutely going to apply to everything we do at the Olympics and knowing we can be resilient,” Matt said. Hamilton.

“Really for us it just showed us that everything we have done has paid off and really prepared us for this moment. And I hope this moment will prepare us for the next moment ahead of us which will hopefully come to Beijing, ”said Shuster.

New to the team is Duluth native Chris Plys who replaces Ty George, who retired after the 2018 Winter Olympics.

“I had a bit of history with John and Matt and Tyler. But I still wasn’t sure. I thought there were a few other guys that might be on their roster. Matt and I had a lot. talked about wanting to play together again as our careers progressed. To have that opportunity to go back and have the chance to compete for something that we had talked about for a long time was pretty special, “said Plys.
