Kevin Koe - A Legacy of Curling Greatness Born in the Canadian Arctic
Kevin Koe has achieved curling greatness on the Canadian and world stage. With four Canadian Championships, two World Championships, and an appearance at the 2018 Olympics he has to be considered one of the greatest Canadian curlers of all time. Kevin comes from a family with a legacy of curling. His father Fred, brother Jamie and sister Kerry are all curlers of note, with national and international accomplishments of their own. However, perhaps not as well known by curling and sport enthusiasts, is Kevin's legacy from a cultural perspective.
In this episode we discuss with Kevin his last two curling seasons, the effects of COVID-19 on curling and what the game may look like when it returns, changes to Team Koe, Kevin's Gwich'in heritage, and roots in the Mackenzie Delta of the Northwest Territories in the Canadian Arctic, his father Fred and Grandfather Chief Jim Koe and much more.
