Switzerland’s Binia Feltscher topped Japan’s Satsuki Fujisawa 9-6 to win gold at the world womens curling championship in Swift Current Sunday night
It’s the third consecutive world championship for Switzerland. Feltscher won the world title in 2014 and Alina Patz won last year.
Japan had an easy draw on the ice to force extra ends but Fujisawa’s last stone rolled through the house with Switzerland earning a steal of two.
In the bronze medal game Sunday afternoon, Canada’s Chelsea Carey lost 9-8 to Russia’s Anna Siderova.
The loss means Carey’s rink does not qualify for the Roar of the Rings Olympics trial.
The nine day event drew just over 52-thousand fans to the Credit Union I-Plex.
