Gushue defeated Nova Scotia’s Matthew Manuel 6-2 to claim the Stu Sells 1824 Halifax Classic.
That’s now three straight championships for Gushue.
The impressive winning streak dates back to the Brier in Kingston, Ont., when Gushue won two must-win playoff games and the championship game to secure his third national title. That Brier win came on Mar. 8, just days before the pandemic shut down the sporting world – Gushue was meant to represent Canada at the men’s world championship. That obviously never happened.
