This hot Canadian curler (kinda reminds me of Nick Lachey), nicknamed Johnny Mo, started playing with Kevin Martin in 2006 with the intention of winning gold at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. He started curling when he was 5, and really grew up with the sport. After he finished second at the 1997 Canadian Junior Championships, Morris went on to win the next two national championships in 1998 and 1999. He even set records for most wins by a skip along the way! Also in 1998/99, he won both world junior championships! After a brief setback from being rendered unconscious by a car in 1997, he’s been on track with his team to kick butt at the upcoming Olympics. Here are some other stats:

Date of Birth: December 16, 1978
Birthplace: Winnipeg, MB
Residence: Chestermere, AB
Position: Third

When he’s not curling, he’s also a firefighter – hot! (No pun intended – or was it). He has also actually written his own book on the sport called Fit to Curl. It’s the first sport-specific guide to training for curling. Curlers of all levels are able to choose a workout program that helps them play better & enjoy the game more.
