As was previously announced on November 5th, our defending champions in the mixed doubles category have been selected to represent Quebec at the upcoming mixed doubles Canadian championship which will be one of the events hosted inside Curling Canada’s bubble in Calgary in early 2021.
The duo made up of Laurie St-Georges and Félix Asselin (self-named Team Bobébé) won the provincial mixed doubles championship in 2019, but unfortunately their Canadian championship was canceled due to COVID-19. Yesterday, Laurie and Félix confirmed that they have read all of Curling Canada’s rules and restrictions which must be respected by all players entering the bubble, and have agreed to abide by all of the required conditions. We have no worries about these two players as they have always stood out when it comes to respecting the rules and having good sportsmanship (we don’t need to mention their curling talent – that goes without saying!).
Laurie and Félix are hoping to spend several weeks in Calgary this winter as the two athletes will be entering the selection process with their respective women’s and men’s curling teams. Laurie’s team (composed of Hailey Armstrong, Emily Riley, Cynthia St-Georges and Isabelle Thiboutot) were the runners-up at the women’s provincial championship last year and are hoping that they will get the chance to represent the province in 2021. Felix is a member of Mike Fournier’s team which won the bronze medal at the men’s provincial championship in 2020. Their team will be back this year with a new addition of Martin Crête at the third position. The new Team Fournier (Martin Crête, Félix Asselin, JF Trépanier and William Dion) have already registered this season with the hopes of being selected to wear the fleur de lys at the Brier in 2021.
