Canada Dominates Japan in 6 Ends at Men’s Curling Worlds

Canada men's curling world championship

Brad Gushue steered Canada to an emphatic 9-3 victory over Japan’s Shinya Abe, wrapping up the game in just six ends at the world men’s curling championship in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. This win pushed Gushue’s team to an impressive 9-2 record, setting the stage for their final round-robin showdown against Switzerland later today.

Following a narrow defeat to Sweden on Thursday, Canada showed resilience and determination on the ice. Despite Japan managing to level the score early on, Canada swiftly turned the tide with a dominant display, securing three points in the third end and an additional four in the fourth.

With their eyes set on securing a spot in the semifinals, Canada needs either a win against Switzerland or a Scotland loss to Sweden. Currently tied with Scotland at 9-2, Canada holds the tiebreaker advantage, having defeated Scotland earlier in the round-robin stage.
