  • Brad Jacobs settles for silver as Sweden wins curling worlds
    today and we were on the wrong side of the edge said Jacobs We didn t give fans much to cheer for Jacobs s Sault Ste Marie Ont rink had hoped to complete a fourth place to first place run after entering the playoff round with two straight losses The Jacobs rink also fell short in its quest to win the first world crown for a Northern Ontario rink since Al Hackner s Thunder Bay rink triumphed in 1985 Jacobs s rink was the first Northern Ontario team to win the Brier and gain entry to the worlds since then First world crown for Edin Edin captured his first world men s crown after serving on bronze medal winning teams in 2011 and 2012 He also played on a Swedish team that won a world junior men s title in 2004 It means a lot having the Olympic season just one year ahead said Edin who also garnered the Colin Campbell award as the competition s most sportsmanlike curler It feels amazing because now we know we can get all the support we need to improve our game and to really get strong for that Starting with the hammer the Swedes took a 2 0 lead in the first end as Jacobs missed both of his shots In the second end Edin forced Jacobs to settle for one point but Sweden went ahead 4 1 in the third as the skip drew for two while gently tapping a Canadian rock back Jacobs cut Canada s deficit to 4 3 in the fourth as he hit and stuck for two points But Edin restored his team s two point advantage in the fifth as he broke up a cluster of Canadian and Swedish stones with the hammer Before Edin took his final shot 11 rocks were in play including six three from each country on each side of the four foot ring But he only managed to earn one point after a Jacobs hit and roll had put Canada in scoring position Edin managed to capitalize on a Jacobs miscue and one of his own in the sixth end After Jacobs was heavy on his first shot and left the rock at the back of the house the Swedish skip failed to get his second rock behind cover wicking off a guard and leaving both rocks exposed Jacobs tried to split them and take out both but he did not catch a large enough piece of one rock and Sweden stole a point to go up 6 3 Canada pulled within two points in the seventh as Jacobs drew to the four foot They might have scored more but Jacobs was heavy on his first attempt and the rock wound up in the back of the 12 foot The Canadian skip was heavy with another draw attempt on his final shot in the eighth end enabling Sweden to go ahead 8 4 But Jacobs made no mistake in the ninth end

  • Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir finish 2nd at figure skating worlds
    them at the rink every day and seeing how great they are has pushed us and I think in turn we ve pushed them back It s a great storyline for next year Their rivalry is the fiercest in figure skating right now and they ll head into next year s Olympics with two world titles apiece Moir said it s largely the rivalry that has pushed both teams to such lofty heights We use each other every day in practice Moir said It s hard to slack off when you have these guys out there going 100 miles an hour around the ice We just try and keep up It s going to be fun Canadian Governor General David Johnston was in attendance and Prime Minister Stephen Harper tweeted his congratulations to Virtue and Moir This was supposed to be the Canadians week likely their last world championship in front of their hometown fans Virtue grew up in London while Moir is from Ilderton about a 20 minute drive north They d acted almost like unofficial ambassadors for the event and their faces could be seen on posters and signs around the city Too much pressure I think it s more difficult to skate at home than in neutral territory I saw they kind of feel the pressure Zoueva said Moir said they loved the support and were thrilled to compete in front of people who ve been there since Day 1 But he admitted the week was also exhausting You walk in the door and sometimes it felt like we couldn t get away from it he said You walk in and you know every single volunteer you know every single bellman at the hotel everybody knows who you are Virtue in a one shoulder backless black dress and Moir dazzled the fans with Carmen on Saturday a program that was 180 degree turn from the ethereal Vancouver Olympic free dance to music by Gustav Mahler that oozed innocence Carmen has received mixed reviews but Virtue and Moir believe in pushing the ice dance envelope I think there s a lot of figure skating people who weren t really on our level and didn t agree with Carmen at all Moir said We ll see what we can make next year We re not going to go back into the classic Virtue and Moir that everyone wants either because we re older and more mature I think we ll have something special for you next year Carmen was an athletically ambitious program that Moir admitted made for a tough year One lift has Virtue do a backflip into Moir s arms and then up over his shoulders and ends with the two spinning circles We really pushed ourselves this year with some tricky elements and tough stuff everything that we did was new Moir said I think we know what we have to do we have to do us a little bit more I think it s our
