Duluth’s Plys, teammate Persinger make Olympic curling coed field
Duluth, Minnesota native Chris Plys will have two chances to take home a curling medal from the Beijing Olympics.
Plys is the only member of the 2022 U.S. men’s team who wasn’t a part of the gold medal-winning foursome in Pyeongchang. He also qualified for the mixed doubles field along with Vicky Persinger.
The Americans beat Russia 6-4 at a last-chance qualifying event in the Netherlands. Earlier, Australia beat South Korea 6-5 to earn the other Olympic berth that was still up for grabs.
