From Brazil to Yukon to Dumfries

A brief story of the team from Brazil competing at the mixed doubles world championship in Scotland this week. Turns out Aline Lima Goncalves moved from Brazil to the Yukon (can you say culture shock?) and took to curling in a big way, says this CBC article:

"I started playing in 2011 and since then I became hooked to the sport. I am always playing or practising doing one of those things."
And, to show how difficult it is to find curlers from Brazil, Goncalves only met her partner last week!
