Curling Analyst

2010 Olympic gold medalist Kevin Martin reprises his role as a curling analyst for NBC Sports during the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. This marks Martin’s second Olympic assignment with NBC Sports, following his debut in the same role in Sochi in 2014.

Martin is considered one of the greatest curlers of all time, and holds the Olympic curling record for most victories by a skip, with 20 total wins at the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Martin’s Canadian team went undefeated throughout the Olympic tournament in 2010, becoming the first team to accomplish the feat since 1924. Martin’s team defeated Norway in the final to earn his first Olympic gold medal, after winning silver in Salt Lake in 2002. Martin also participated in the Albertville Games (1992), when curling was a demonstration sport, and finished fourth.
