  • Jeff Stoughton settling into mixed doubles role - Sportsnet.ca
    think it s just sort of missing the atmosphere and what s going on so it s been nice to be able to go This is my second event so it s less travel for sure but it s been pretty great and very comfortable It s been a bit of a challenge for Stoughton getting Canadians up to speed on mixed doubles with the sport as a whole heading on a fast track for the Olympics People still probably don t realize how big of a deal the Olympics are and I probably don t even realize because I ve never been there and experienced it but I only hear great and wonderful things about Team Canada he added I think it s an opportunity for two more curlers to experience it in a mixed doubles event It s going to be very interesting because Canada doesn t really know this game at all I ve had conversations with people at work on the street and they re even surprised it s two players There s a bit of a learning curve to go to the general public to understand the game so that s something I m sure Curling Canada is going to be working on over the next few years The World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship has been held annually since 2008 Traditional curling fans might be surprised to learn that through eight events Canada has struggled a bit earning only one medal bronze in 2009 while Hungary has won gold at two of the past three world championships Hungary may have a great curling program but there may only be one or two great men s players or one or two great women s players so they play mixed doubles together and you ve got a pretty darn good team as they ve proven Stoughton explained The woman on the team Dorottya Palancsa hadn t even played a traditional game she s only played mixed doubles since she s started curling It s a different feel over in Europe where they ve embraced this game a lot more than Canada has and we ve got some catching up to do for sure Stoughton will be in Oshawa Ont during the National running Tuesday through Sunday at the General Motors Centre and he ll be sticking around afterwards as the next mixed doubles event conveniently takes place in town immediately following the Pinty s Grand Slam of Curling event As for the next step for mixed doubles Stoughton said it would be wonderful if there was a Pinty s Grand Slam of Curling event that featured the format The schedule is so busy with everything it would be nice if they could pencil one in there he said It would be really good to get it some great TV exposure some of these great players playing in it and having some fun It s something different We ran an event in Portage la Prairie between the men

of two to trail 3 0 Howard struggled again clipping a guard with his final shot in the fourth but already had shot rock and got on the board with a single The rinks alternated singles in six and seven as Howard was unable to mount a comeback Carruthers lost his first game of the tournament to Epping but then went on a roll and has won five straight Gushue also holds a 5 1 record at the National

next two ends stealing one in the fifth and three in the sixth Epping counted two in seven but ran out of rocks in eight It s great we re in a Grand Slam final said Team Gushue third Mark Nichols The second one this year and hopefully we ll be on the other side of it tomorrow afternoon but we re going to have to play a little bit better than we did tonight Gushue is a three time Grand Slam

going to have to play well Nichols said They seem to be curling really well and they re confident We ve been playing well this week too so I expect a good back and forth game and hopefully we ll have hammer coming home in the last end Carruthers also shared what it ll take to win and jokingly trash talked his former teammate They re one of the best teams in the world Carruthers said adding with a smile We re playing well so it should be a really good game but hopefully I can get him off his game throw some jabs here and get in his head a little bit but it ll be tough He s a pretty mentally

pressure on them in the third end and they just really had one bad end Fleury said Then they had to start gambling so it was just that kind of game Sweeting looked to bounce back for two in the fourth but her shooter rolled too far and wasn t close enough for second Fleury made an open hit for three in the fifth to bring out the handshakes Fleury fell in her opening game to EunJung Kim of South Korea but has now won five straight Meanwhile Homan from Ottawa continued her undefeated streak at the National extending her record to 6 0 with a 5 3 win over Saskatoon s Stefanie Lawton Homan scored
