THE WINTER OLYMPICS IN SOCHI BEGIN IN JUST OVER
A WEEK AND FOR THE FOURTH TIME, RIO'S DEBBIE
MCCORMICK WILL BE COMPETING IN WOMEN'S CURLING FOR THE UNITED STATES.
MCCORMICK IS THE VICE SKIP AND WILL JOIN
ERIKA BROWN, JESSICA SCHULTZ AND ANN SWISSHELM ONTHE U.S.
MCCORMICK HAS WON SEVEN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IN CURLING,
BUT HAS YET TO MEDAL AT THE OLYMPICS,
FINISHING FOURTH IN THE 2002 OLYMPICS IN SALT LAKE CITY.
THE GOAL FOR THIS YEAR'S AMERICAN TEAM
IS SIMPLE--- FINISH IN THE TOP 3.
Debbie McCormick: I haven't won a medal yet, and we're working
very hard to do everything we can to get on the podium.
My entire team, we've all curled at the Olympics at some point and
I think just the experience of being at the Olympics before and knowing
what to expect going into the Games is going to help us tremendously.
I feel such great support being from Wisconsin and
curling Wisconsin- the community is totally behind us -
I feel like all of America is behind us.
and it's such an honor to
wear the United States on your back.
