John Shuster

John is the skip of the 2022 USA Men’s Olympic Curling Team and 2018 Olympic Gold Medalists. The 2022 Beijing Olympics marked his fifth consecutive time representing the United States at the Olympic Winter Games, where he has medaled twice (2006 - Bronze, 2018 - Gold). Over his decorated career, he has won 8 Men’s National Championships and the 2022 Olympics was his record 16th appearance representing the USA at World Curling Federation sanctioned events, winning over 100 games in the process. Shuster is known for his team’s storybook run to Olympic glory in 2018. Propelled by Shuster’s “double takeout for 5” in the 8th end of the final against top-ranked Sweden, he and his team would become the first Gold Medalists in the sport of curling for the United States. His curling career has only flourished since, collecting two more National Championships and qualifying for his US record fifth Olympic Games, where he was a flag bearer for team USA. John resides in Superior, Wisconsin with his wife Sara and their two sons, Luke and Logan.
