Johnny Jahr might not go home from Sochi with a gold medal in curling but it seems the German curler will return to some comfort in Hamburg. Jahr, who, at 48, is the oldest curler at the Games is wealthy, wealthy, wealthy. How wealthy? According to this story in the Associated Press, really wealthy.
Older curling fans may remember Jahr's name from back in the 1980s and 1990s when he was a regular with Rodger Schmidt. But he hung up his broom in 2000, only to return for a shot at the Olympics. He's been off the scene so long many of today's top curlers don't know him.
