Kevin Martin is bringing his Olympic gold to Halifax.

The Alberta skip, who achieved men’s curling supremacy at the Vancouver Games on the weekend, will be in town Friday with teammates John Morris, Marc Kennedy and Ben Hebert to launch the Tim Hortons Brier at the Metro Centre.

Although the four-time Brier winner is not competing at the national event because his Olympic training didn’t permit his participation in Alberta’s provincials, he will hold an autograph session Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the concourse level at the Metro Centre.

The Brier opens Saturday and runs until March 14.
