Team Bio

Team Kim made their Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling debut at the inaugural Tour Challenge (Tier 1) in 2015 and immediately rose near the top qualifying for the playoffs and reaching the semifinals.

Kim won three events in 2015-16: their hometown Uiseong International Curling Tour; the Shorty Jenkins Classic in Cornwall, Ont.; and the Canad Inns Women’s Classic in Portage la Prairie, Man. They also finished fourth at the International Bernese Ladies Cup in Switzerland and the CCT Uiseong Masters.

They became famous during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games as the “Garlic Girls” based on their hometown’s famous export. Team Kim earned the silver medal losing to Sweden’s Team Hasselborg in the gold-medal game.

The members of Team Kim use English names on the ice to improve their language skills: Annie, Steak, Sunny and Pancake.
