Langley-based curler makes Canadian Youth Olympic team

Tyler Tardi, a young curler who lives in Cloverdale and plays out of the Langley Curling Club, has been selected to represent Canada at the 2016 Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway next February.

Tardi joins Sterling Middleton – who lives in Fort St. John and plays out of the Fort St. John Curling Club – on the Canadian squad.

Tardi and Middleton represented B.C. at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George this past February, where they won the bronze.

Tyler skipped the B.C. men’s team and Sterling played third.

Speaking about the news, Tardi said: “I’m at a loss for words, it’s amazing. I’ve always wanted to wear the Maple Leaf and that dream has now come true.”

Middleton was equally excited.

“It’s an honour to be picked. I’m really happy because it was my goal for this year,” he said. “So many people wanted to be chosen so it’s pretty special to make the team.

“I’m really looking forward to being on the team with Tyler as I think we meshed well together this year, so it will be great to curl with him again.”

The pair, who are both 16 years old, will be joined by Mary Fay and Karlee Burgess from Nova Scotia who were part of the team that took the Women’s silver at the Canada Winter Games.
