Meet John Morris: The Canadian Firefighter Turned Olympic Curler And Your New Fave

Master of fire and ice.

Canada's Olympic Team is full of incredibly talented athletes this year. With a total of ten medals won so far — three gold, four silver and three bronze — Canada is on its way to becoming an Olympic juggernaut in Pyeongchang.

But while the world is fully aware of Canada's athletic dominance, it's also starting to pay more attention to how insanely good looking everyone on the team is.

One athlete who's been turning heads with the ladies is John Morris, the curler from Canmore, Alberta who just won a gold medal in mixed doubles curling with teammate Kaitlyn Lawes. Morris has a history of generating the thirst, especially on the Twittersphere:

They have valid reasons to swoon over him — aside from being a two-time Olympic gold medalist, Morris is university educated, a certified personal trainer, a herbal nutritionist, a full-time firefighter and a sports author.

According to his Instagram account, he drives a truck, has a passion for cooking and is also quite the outdoorsman, which is clearly an influence of his Albertan roots.

On the ice, Morris is known for his tendency to swear while on mic. It might not seem like an attractive feature, but when you see him drop a bunch of f-bombs just 21 minutes into the Olympics, you just can't help but love the guy.

In 2010, he was even named by ET Canada as one of Canada's most eligible bachelors. It's unclear whether he's still a bachelor to this day, however, you could always check out his appearance in the 2014 Men of Curling calendar to cheer you up if you ever find out he's off the market.

Congrats to John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes on their gold medal win today!
