From the Hack is proud to present it’s very first edition of “Curling World”, a monthly feature through which we will share an international perspective on the sport of curling including interviews with curlers, coaches and administrators from “non-traditional” curling countries as well as discussions on timely topics impacting the development of the sport around the world.
Our first guest on “Curling World” is Kim Forge, the current president of the Australian Curling Federation. Originally from Alberta, Forge went to Australia over a decade ago on a teaching exchange program and never moved back to Canada. As a curler, Forge has represented Australia at four World Mixed Doubles Championships, eight Pacific-Asia Championships and at both World Mixed Curling Championships. She has been the President of the Australian Curling Federation since 2013 and earlier this year was named to the World Curling Federation Athletes Commission.
Forge joined From The Hack to discuss the state of the sport of curling in Australia and what she is doing to not only help grow the sport in her own country but how she hopes to use her new role as a member of the WCF Athletes Commission to provide a voice for curlers from other “non-traditional” curling countries around the world.
