USA wins World Junior Men's title

Chris Plys and his US team won the World Junior Men's Curling Championship in Ostersund this afternoon. The Americans defeated Oskar Eriksson's local heroes, who had been spectacular all week, in the final game.

Key end was the third when the US picked up three and a 5-2 lead. The Swedes stole two singles late in the game to keep it close at 7-5. They lay three shots when Plys went to play his first and the flamboyant skip (he's the one with the earrings and the hats) made the triple takeout for victory!

Canada beat Norway for the bronze medals.
