World Mixed Doubles: Swiss win Gold

Switzerland took on Finland in the final of the inaugural Mixed Doubles Curling Championship at Vierumaki today.

Toni Mueller and Irene Schori had been impressive all week. Against the home side of Jussi Uusipaavalniemi and Anne Malmi, the Swiss began well, making a two and stealing a single. That was the difference in an entertaining game. Mueller and Schori were two up coming home with the last stone. Switzerland was the first winner of the World Mixed Doubles.

I'M SHOUTING THIS. MIXED DOUBLES IS THE BEST THING TO HIT CURLING THIS CENTURY!

I played and I agree Bob, would have liked to do better, but exciting and precise, so gripping to watch and so intense to play, it'll stay, it was a wonderful event, I was proud of all of us who tryed so hard when the virus was so viscious in decimating the teams chances but they who succeeded where those who deserved...roll on next year...Judith
