Wisconsin curlers looking for gold in Russia

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jan 24, 2014

"It never, ever gets old.  You could call me an Olympic addict."

With that, Rio, Wisconsin's Debbie McCormick says she is pumped to represent America for the fourth time, and this time going after her first gold medal in curling at the Sochi Games.

"I have never been to Russia before.  To have the chance to represent the United States again and have a chance at a medal, it's an overwhelming feeling," she told 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Afternoon News."

She says her American team, with fellow Wisconsinites Erika Brown and Allison Pottinger, can take gold home.

"We definitely have a chance at beating all these teams," said Debbie.

"There's definitely countries that have been at the top the last couple years.  Canada...their athletes are really good.  Scotland is the reigning world champion.  Looking at the field, they're all great, including us."
