Ryan Fry won an Olympic gold medal during the 2014 Sochi games. But on Sunday, according to Vice Sports, he was kicked out of a tournament in Albert, Canada for being too drunk. 

Fry and three othershsd to forfeit their final match of the Red Deer Curling Classic. They were too intoxicated to participate.

After being told they could not finish their final match, they were being disruptive. As a result, they were asked to leave. 

The report suggests that Fry and the other three were breaking things before they left. The other three were Jamie Koe, Chris Schille, and DJ Kidby.

The World Curling Tour received complaints about the four before they were dismissed from the event. Even their opponents had enough of their actions. 

“They went out to curl and they were extremely drunk and breaking brooms and swearing and just unacceptable behavior that nobody wants to watch or hear or listen to and it was just ‘enough was enough,'” facility manager Wade Thurber told CBC Sports.

“There was some damage in the locker room and other teams complaining about their stuff being kicked around in the locker room. So at the end of the day, it was like ‘OK, that’s enough of this gong show.’ The committee for the bonspiel collectively decided that we needed to remove them from the spiel for this year and what happens down the road, I’m not sure yet.”

Koe was the team leader of the four men. They have also been banned from participating in other Red Deer Curling Classic events, according to the Red Deer Curling Classic Committee.

“We did that because we had so many complaints from other players and teams, not to mention the spectators, and so we wanted them to know that we did something about it,” said Thurber. 

“We had people taking pictures of the sign and also lots of people telling us we did the right thing. When you have people complaining like that, there is a need to do something, right?”
