Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

If the 96 Curlers at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020 were asked for the perfect role model in their sport, Canada’s John Morris would surely be very high on that list.

The 40-year-old is the only man to win two Olympic titles – first with Kevin Martin in Vancouver 2010 and second with his Mixed Doubles partner, Kaitlyn Lawes, in PyeongChang 2018.

So it’s not surprising that he was named one of the 26 Athlete Role Models (ARMs) at the Winter YOG in Lausanne.

ARMs have an array of responsibilities in their roles, including sharing their experiences in the Youth Olympic Village and during educational activities. Some of the topics the ARMs  cover include skills development, career management, injury prevention and integrity.
