  • Description

    With a dramatic and unexpected display of outstanding form, France beat Canada during the first day's competition in the 1975 World Curling Championship in Perth, Scotland on Monday (17 March).

    It was the first time in the history of World Championship curling that a French "rink" has beaten the Canadians, who conceded defeat before the end of the match. The score was 8-3 to France.

    Amid a swirl of bagpipes and the echo of a two-hundred year-old cannon, teams from nine nations began a determined struggle to wrest the Air Canada Silver Broom trophy from the current Champion, the United States.

    Other scores during the day's play were: Scotland 7-5 over Norway, U.S.A. 6-4 over West Germany, Sweden 10-7 over Denmark and Switzerland 5-3 over Italy.

    The competition continues through the week, with the finals scheduled for Sunday (23 March).
