The Duluth International Airport was packed with people wanting to greet the Olympians as they got off their flight back to Duluth. So many people proud of the team for capturing the gold medal and putting Duluth on the map for curling.

The people that got off the plane first got an earful of USA USA shouts. People would cheer and yell, then laugh after discovering it wasn't any of the curlers. Then when the real curlers emerged, the crowd went crazy. There was Tyler George running out to an embrace and a kiss.

One by one each member came out with John Shuster last out of the gate getting his son and signing autographs. Kids surrounded all the curlers for the news stations surrounded them looking for sound bytes for stations from the area and Minneapolis.

It was great to see the support from people as these athletes came home to know we were behind them the whole way.
