Team Canada: Right to left - Amber Holland, Kim Schneider, Tammy Schneider and Heather Kalenchuk
Team Canada beat Team China in the semi-final of Capitol One's World Women's Curling Championship in Esbjerg, Denmark today. They will advance to the Gold Medal game against Sweden on Sunday. Amber Holland's rink was the first since 1985 to earn a spot in the Gold Medal final by winning a tie-breaker.
This is quite an accomplishment for the team from Kroneau, Sask who won the right to represent Canada after solidly beating Jennifer Jones at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. They have played consistently throughout the tournie under the excellent skills of skip Amber, the fantastic brushing ability of Tammy and Heather and many great surgical take-outs by Kim.
I wish the team well tomorrow. They have done Canada proud. GO, TEAM CANADA, GO!
Well I would not say they have been "consistant". Pretty rocky there at the start of the week. Understandable--- huge case of bad nerves no doubt. They seem to do well in the later going. Hope they can start off in the final with a couple good ends and then do what they have been doing in the last half. The oposition has been there for so many years that she will be tough to beat.
