Brier Belongs To Gushue

Brad Gushue won a second straight Canadian men's curling champion with a 6-4 win over Alberta's Brendan Bottcher.

Gushue, third Mark Nichols, second Brett Gallant and lead Geoff Walker will represent Canada at the men's world championship in Las Vegas later this month.

The foursome went undefeated to win last year's world title in Edmonton.

They're the first team to win back-to-back titles at the Tim Hortons Brier since Kevin Martin in 2008 and 2009.
