  • Description

    Curling ... and the World Championships opened in Winnipeg, Canada on Monday (27 March). This year 10 countries are taking part, with defending champions, Sweden, out to retain the Silver Broom they won in Karlstad last year.

    SYNOPSIS: The "Broom", as the championships are known, were last held in Canada in 1973, and the winners then, as last were the Swedes.

    One of the first in action was William Sanderson for Scotland.

    All the games were played over 10 ends, and in their opening match the Canadians, throwing here, took on the Norwegians.

    Sweden, in action here, started against Switzerland, and won 10-4.

    The United States opened their programme against the Scots, and they really had to work for a narrow 5-4 win.

    Canada against Norway again, and the Canadians were always in control, running out impressive 14-3 winners.
