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.
