DULUTH, Minn. – The Duluth curling community is excited to welcome home their Olympic athletes on Monday.

The U.S.A curling team boarded a plane in Seoul, South Korea on Sunday, preparing for 27 hours worth of travel.

The Duluth Curling Club is organizing a welcome party for the teams as they make their way to the Duluth International Airport.

While many are excited to welcome home the team, few people are more excited than Randi Curry, who will be welcoming back her boyfriend, gold medalist Tyler George.

“I haven’t seen him in a long time.” Curry said. “Aside from a gold medal, even just seeing the guys come back successful in doing the games that they did, I would be extremely proud. But wearing the gold medal, it’s going to be so much. It’s going to be extra.”

The team is expected to land in Duluth between 5 p.m. and 5:30 pm. Everyone is welcome join in the celebration.
