Team Peterson Motivated to Bring Home Gold in Women’s Curling at 2022 Olympics

Team USA will begin their quest for gold on February 9th.

EVELETH, Minn. – We are just a few weeks away from the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. And while a lot of attention will be directed at Team USA’s men’s curling team, the women have their eyes on bring home gold as well.

Team Peterson is led by skipper and St. Paul native Tabitha Peterson, with her sister Tara on the team, too. Wisconsin natives Becca Hamilton and Nina Roth round out the group, with Duluth’s Aileen Geving serving as the team’s alternate.

“We’ve all been playing together in and out for many, many years so as a team, we’re super tight-knit. We understand each other. We’re just coming off a bronze medalist at the world championships last year so it’s just a matter of building on that. And it seems like every year, we’re getting better and better and climbing,” Geving said.

In the 2018 games, Team USA went 4-5 in round robin play and did not medal. And with the majority of that team back for this trip, they are extra motivated this time around, especially after watching the men win their gold medal in Pyeongchang.

“Going into this Olympic round, we definitely felt way more prepared having been to the Olympics before, having worked our way to get to the Olympics before. Now we had four years to get ready for this one. Watching the boys win the gold medal was an incredible moment, especially watching my brother do it. I’ve seen how hard he’s worked. So now that he has one, I need one too,” said Hamilton.
