Record holder for most Olympic curling wins to serve as curling analyst
Kevin Martin, a two-time Olympic curling medalist who skipped Team Canada to the gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games, will join NBC Olympics for its 2014 Olympic Winter Games coverage, it was announced Monday.
Martin, who holds the men's record for the most Olympic curling victories with 20 total wins spanning two Olympics, will be a curling analyst for NBC Olympics' coverage. Martin's team was undefeated during round-robin play at Vancouver in 2010, becoming the first team to accomplish the feat since 1924.
"After such a distinguished career, Kevin will provide our viewers with an insightful look at this increasingly popular Winter Games sport," said Jim Bell, executive producer of NBC Olympics.
Martin's extensive curling resume includes his gold medal in Vancouver (2010), and a silver medal in Salt Lake City (2002); a world championship (2008); and four titles at the Brier, Canada's annual men's curling championship.
