P.E.I.’s Brett Gallant excited to represent Canada at Winter Olympics (CBC PEI)

Charlottetown-born curler Brett Gallant says competing in the Olympics will be a dream come true for him and his fiancée, Jocelyn Peterman, even if COVID-19 protocols will make it difficult for them to see each other.

Gallant will be heading to Beijing this winter as part of Brad Gushue’s team. The Newfoundland and Labrador team qualified for the games following a close match during Olympic curling trials in Saskatchewan this November.

Peterman, who’s a member of the Jennifer Jones rink out of Manitoba, also qualified for the Games following a nail-biter in the women’s final.

“That was super nerve-wracking for me,” Gallant said. “I just remember the relief and excitement and how proud I was of her when they did win.”

This will be the first time the two of them will be participating in the Olympics. But Gallant said the global pandemic will probably make it so the couple won’t be able to bask in the moment together.
