The Tim Hortons Brier is one of the biggest events in the world of curling, and it took place in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 2017. The Brier is a round-robin tournament where teams from across Canada compete to be crowned national champions and earn the right to represent Canada at the World Curling Championships.

The 2017 Tim Hortons Brier was hosted at the Mile One Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland from March 4 to March 12. The event featured some of the top curling teams from across Canada, including Team Gushue, which represented Newfoundland and Labrador.

Team Gushue was led by Brad Gushue, who is widely considered one of the best curlers in the world. Gushue and his team had the support of the local fans throughout the tournament, and they did not disappoint. They went undefeated throughout the round-robin portion of the tournament, and they continued their dominance in the playoffs.

In the final, Team Gushue faced Team Koe from Alberta. The game was a close battle throughout, but Gushue and his team managed to pull ahead in the final end to secure a 7-6 victory and claim the Tim Hortons Brier championship.

The win was especially meaningful for Gushue and his team, as it was the first time a team from Newfoundland and Labrador had won the Brier in over 40 years. The victory was celebrated by fans across the province, and it helped put Newfoundland and Labrador on the map as a major destination for curling events.

Overall, the 2017 Tim Hortons Brier was a huge success, and it helped showcase the beauty and hospitality of Newfoundland and Labrador to curling fans from across Canada and around the world.
