Canada - ‘Extremely Drunk’ Olympic Curling Champion Team Disqualified

||| Twitter @TribSports|||

Canadian Olympic curling champion Mr Ryan Fry and his teammates were kicked out of a tournament in the Canadian city of Red Deer this Sunday due to 'extreme drunkenness'.

The Olympic Champion has admitted the events and apologizes for his misconduct.

Mr Fry, who conquered the gold medal for Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, was invited to participate together with players Jamie Koe, DJ Kidby and Chris Schille. However, the organizers asked them to leave the tournament due to their 'unsportsmanlike behavior' soon after their arrival.

Events manager Mr Wade Thurber explained: “They went out to curl and they were extremely drunk and breaking brooms and swearing. It’s just unacceptable behavior that nobody wants to watch or hear or listen to and it was just ‘enough is enough’. There was some damage in the locker room and other teams complaining about their stuff being kicked around the locker room.”

“So at the end of the day, it was like ‘OK, that’s enough of this gong show. The committee for the bonspiel collectively decided that we need to remove them from the spiel for this year and what happens down the road, I’m not sure yet.”

Fry apologized on social media for his conduct, stating: “I would like to sincerely apologise to the fans, participants and organisers of the Red Deer Curling Classic.

“I came to the event to play and enjoy. My actions were truly disrespect and embarrassing — the committee was right to disqualify us from play. I allowed myself to lose control and I offended people with my actions. I wish nothing more than to apologise to everyone individually.

“I will be taking proper steps to ensure this problem can never happen and I will strive to become a better version of myself while contributing positively to the sport and curling community that I love so much.”

All three of Fry’s teammates also turned to Twitter to apologise for their actions.
