Reigning national champions Erika Brown (Oakville, Ontario) and Brady Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.) have been named USA Curling's top athletes for 2013. In addition, Brown's team is 2013 Team of the Year.
Brown, 40, a native of Madison, Wis., led her team to a very successful 2012-13 season, culminating by earning the U.S. its women's berth in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. This is the fourth time that Brown, who is a seven-time U.S. national champion, has earned the women's MVP award. She previously won in 2004, 1994 and 1988.
"Being named Athlete of the Year is a great honor, but I share it with my team," said Brown, who works in Ontario as a physician's assistant. "We each bring out the best in each other, and it is a sum of everyone's commitment and energy that earned this honor for me."
