Canadian curling team disqualified from tournament for drunkenness: report

November 20, 2018

A Canadian curling team was thrown out of a tournament this weekend for inappropriate drunken behavior, CNN reported Tuesday.

The report detailed that Ryan Fry, an Olympian gold-medalist, Jamie Koh, Chris Schille, and DJ Kidby were forced to forfeit the Red Deer Curling Classic in Alberta on Sunday after they reportedly broke brooms, damaged the locker room, and generally created a ruckus.

Mr. Fry and Mr. Koh later apologized on social media.

I want to express how sorry I am to everyone affected by my actions on Saturday. I never meant to offend anyone but that’s the result of a poor decision - I have to live with the consequences and will be taking every step needed to guarantee this never happens again. #notgivingup pic.twitter.com/3gnjkDam1W Ryan Fry (@ryanfry79) November 19, 2018
