WINNIPEG - Even Northern Ontario skip Brad Jacobs could not believe the dream he is living.
Jacobs executed a patented double kill to score a deuce in the ninth in to salt away a trip to the Olympics.
The pair of points gave Jacobs a 7-4 lead over B.C.'s John Morris in the men's final of the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials before 8,604 fans at the MTS Centre on Sunday afternoon.
"It's weird," Jacobs said in the wake of his biggest curling moment to date. "It's almost like it's all meant to be — a silver medal last year at the Worlds and now, going to the Olympics and playing them all again."
Supported by Winnipeg native Ryan Fry at third, second E.J. Harnden and his brother Ryan Harnden, Jacobs will represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Feb. 7-23.
