The slow start by Brad Jacobs’ curling team at the Sochi Olympics is a distant memory.
Canada clinched second place in the round-robin of the Olympic men’s curling tournament with a pair of wins Sunday, including a 9-8 extra-end win over China.
Jacobs’ rink from Sault. Ste. Marie finished the round-robin with a 7-2 record.
That’s a huge difference from how Canada started, with a shaky win over Germany followed by back-to-back losses to Sweden and Switzerland.
Sweden finished first in the round-robin.
Canada opened today’s curling action with an 8-6 win over the United States.
