Olympic Gold Medalist Landsteiner in Traverse City
TRAVERSE CITY — Olympic gold medalist John Landsteiner arrived in Traverse City on Friday, ready to participate in the National Cherry Festival parade on Saturday.
Landsteiner was a member of the USA men’s curling team in the 2018 Olympics, taking home gold.
He is looking forward to share his experience with fans on Saturday, as he will participate in the parade with the Traverse City Curling Club.
“Our team has been able to travel all around the country,” Landsteiner said. “We’ve been coast-to-coast, in the midwest, everywhere. And I can’t tell you how many people know what curling is, and were extremely excited, and were watching our gold medal match. So, the interest is really at a top level right now, and I hope it can maintain into next season.”
He will be holding a meet-and-greet function at Right Brain Brewery on Saturday from 2:30 -4 p.m.
