Two Local Residents Back From Winning Silver Medal At World Wheelchair Curling Championship

KAWARTHA LAKES-Congratulations to Team Canada for bringing home the silver medal from the 2024 World Wheelchair Curling Championship! And with a local connection.

Chrissy Molnar from Bobcaygeon and Jon Thurston from Dunsford are both on the medal-winning team.

“It was an honour to once again get to represent Canada on the World Stage. I’m very proud of our team’s showing at the World Championships and being able to bring home the Silver medal for Canada is a testament to all the hard work we have put in.” Thurston told Kawartha 411 News exclusively on Tuesday. “I’d also like to say a huge thank you to everyone that supported us and cheered us on while we were away in Korea competing, it was greatly appreciated.”

The Championships took place from March 2-9 at the 2018 Paralympic Games venue in Gangneung, South Korea. This is the third year Canada has brought home the silver medal.

Congratulations to the entire team!
