About Wes Johnson:

Curls out of: Granite Curling Club, Seattle, Wash.

Nickname: The WEJ or Messy Wessy

Curling start: "I started playing around on curling ice in wool socks at the age of 8 and bought shoes, played a real game and joined a league at 12. I wanted to curl because my older brother, Mark, did and he was getting good at it, and I thought I might, too. He has always been my mentor. He's one of the top four skips in Edmonton."

Backwards sweeper: "For the entire first season of curling I swept backwards, not realizing it until the following year when somebody finally noticed. Not realizing I was doing it wrong I made the extremely awkward switch. I've since learned that being bisweptual is good."

What he enjoys most about curling: "The thing I enjoy most about the sport is the people I get to meet. I also enjoy the intelligence of the game: the nearly perfect physics; the strategy. It's great to be able to play a gentleman's game that encourages screaming at the top of your lungs. And I love the fact that curling is like another great activity: It's all in the touch."

Life dreams: "I have 4 dreams: 1) To have a happy family life with the Love of my Life Katya,  her son Alexey, and my daughter Kana, and any new additions that may come. 2) To write and actually publish my many projects. 3) To be a world class curler. 4) To publish my theory on the universe (Done.)"

In his own words: "I want to play with the best curlers in the world, and I want to win a gold medal for my country: the United States of America. It's our turn."

Curling strengths: "My strengths as a curler are my ability to to remain calm, my sense of balance and timing, the excellent training I had growing up in Edmonton, and my intuition, visualization, confidence, stubbornness and touch.

Curling weaknesses: "My weaknesses as a curler are my eight years off in Los Angeles studying acting and writing, my occasional lapses of memory, and the fact that nobody can hear me scream."

Training regimen: "Working out and swiming 3-4 times a week, and visualization."

Other activities: Hiking, downhill skiing, water skiing, camping, swimming, bicycling, reading, writing, and most especially walking and playing with his daughter, Kana.

Lucky charms: I am fortunate to have 3: my daughter Kana, my Love Katya, and the Angels that seem to watch out for me.
