Sweden stay unbeaten

Sweden's world champion men's curling team made it three wins from their opening three fixtures with a 7-6 victory over Canada on Tuesday.

Niklas Edin's Swedes sealed the triumph with a point in the 10th end at the Ice Cube Curling Center to inflict the Canadians' second loss of the tournament in their third match.

Regarding Canada, who Sweden also beat in last year's World Championship final, skip Edin said: "They were not having their best day at work.

"We played better than them I think the whole game and they didn't really get up to their standards, and I'm glad we took advantage of that.

"We know they're the hottest team on tour, in the world, right now."

On Canada showing their frustration on the ice, Edin added: "Smashing their brooms seven, eight times in a row is kind of hard to miss.

"I know I would do the same as well if I missed something really narrow because of the ice."

China and Norway are also unbeaten, with both having played two matches each, after defeating the United States 9-4 and Russia 9-8 respectively on Tuesday.

Great Britain have won two out of three after they saw off Germany 7-6.
