Duluthians go for Gold

UMD Bulldog and Team USA goalie Maddie Rooney sported the Aerial Lift Bridge on the back of her helmet as Team USA took gold last night. There were a total of five UMD Bulldogs in the quest for the gold medal: Rooney and defenseman Sidney Morin for team USA, and forward Haley Irwin, defensemen Jocelyne Larocque and Brigette Lacquette were playing for Canada. Also, the U.S. team was coached by Duluth native Robb Stauber.

Former Duluthian and US Ski Team coach Jason Cork and his sweet mustache helped Kikkan Randall and Jessica Diggins bring the Gold home for USA in the women’s team sprint.

Excellent ‘stache @jcorkski #USAGOLD

Four years ago, Coach Cork gave Perfect Duluth Day some ski lessons. They didn’t help us get to the Olympics.

The men’s curling team come from Minnesota and Wisconsin, and practice at the Duluth Curling club. They will go for the gold Saturday morning. The video below was produced for men’s clothing company Pursuit who provided suits for the team. Pursuit is in Columbus, OH, and owned by former Duluthian Nate DeMars.
