Norway’s Ulsrud sides with the World
Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud made his debut in the Continental Cup in 2008. This year will be his fourth appearance after helping Team World even the series at four wins last year in Langley.
Ulsrud is considered one of the most popular and highly respected competitors on the international curling scene. He has represented Norway at the World Men’s Curling Championship on eight occasions resulting in three bronze medals. He was also part of what many considered the most memorable moment in curling history when he played Canada’s Kevin Martin in the gold medal final of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
Before making their way to Penticton, Ulsrud’s rink with Torger Nergård, Christoffer Svae and Håvard Vad Peterson will be competing at the European Curling Championships in Sweden with a third consecutive gold medal at stake.
