    Background: Canada, host of the sixth World Curling Championship, seemed the strongest contender to win this year's championships as it finished sixth round matches the only unbeaten team. Switzerland and France are tied for second place with five wins each.

    If Canada wins the championships it will be the sixth successive year they have taken the top honours.

    This film of middle round play shows Canada's skip (captain) Harvey Mazinke, curling against Sweden's Kjell Oscarius, as well as other action between Switzerland and France and a match between the Untied States and Norway, both Jow in the standings.
