KARUIZAWA, Japan (AP) -
Canada had planned to win two gold
medals in the first Olympic curling
tournament, but came away yesterday
with only one. The United States, true
to form, left empty-handed.
Between them, the Canadian men
and women have eight of the last 10
world curling champions. While the
Canadian women beat surprise finalist
Denmark 7-5, the men were stunned in
the gold medal game 9-3 by
Switzerland, a team the Canadians had
beaten earlier 8-3.
"I don't know what happened," said
Canadian skip, or captain, Mike Harris,
who is a professional golfer.
"I wouldn't have minded losing if we
had played well, but we just didn't show
up.
The Winter Games must bring out
the best in the Swiss, who haven't won
the world championship since 1992,
when they also won an Olympic
demonstration tournament.
"I have lost four Swiss finals before,
sometimes by one inch," Swiss skip
Patrick Huerlimann said. "That we can
win such an important final as this is
just an unbelievable feeling. Our strate-
gy was to put pressure on them from the
first end because you can beat them
only if you are aggressive."
The Americans, who haven't fin-
ished higher than third in a world cham-
pionship since 1993, fell well behind
early for the second match in a row and
lost 9-4 to Norway in the men's bronze-
medal match.
The bronze would have been good
enough for the United States, but only
one gold didn't seem to satisfy the
Canadians.
"Sometimes people say, 'Well,
you've won Canada so it should be easy
when you play international teams,"'
said Joan McCusker, one of Canada's
players. "But that is not true. Those
teams that play in internal competitions
play regularly, have experience, travel
widely and are very good teams."
The Swiss, who sent a much more
experienced team to Nagano than the
Canadians, opened up a 9-1 lead by

scoring seven points in the fourth, fifth
and sixth ends. The Canadians conced.
ed after the eighth end, partly because
Switzerland owned the all-important
hammer - the final shot - in the 10th
and often decisive end.
The Canadian women, aided by a
point in the eighth end that was so close
a measurement was required, denied
Denmark its first gold medal in any
Winter Olympics.
Still, the Danes came away with their
first medal of any kind outside of th4
Summer Olympics.
Denmark has never been a factor
before in the Winter Olympics because
it lacks the sports facilities of
Scandinavian rivals Norway and
Sweden. Even its curling team often
must take a ferry to Sweden to train.
Canada, winner of the past two world
championships, got off to a 3-0 start in
the first end and led 6-2 after the sixth.
"The team is totally ecstatic," Canad
skip Sandra Schmirler said. "We playe
a strong game throughout and got off to
a great start ... (but) they really put the
pressure on us and made us make good
shots."
Sweden beat Britain 10-6 for the
women's bronze medal.
Just as they did in falling behind
Canada 4-0 in a 7-1 semifinal loss, the
Americans trailed from the start against
Norway, which led 6-0 after five.
Most matches last 10 ends, or
innings, but the Americans conceded
after nine.
"In the last two games we did not
play well at all," U.S. skip Tim
Somerville said. "We had too many vps
and downs, and that's why we ended up
in fourth place."
Norway captain Eigil Ramsfjell said
the bronze medal helped ease the frus-
tration of the close loss to Switzerland.
"I am happy about the medal but alsd9
a little bit sentimental about finishing,"
said Ramsfjell, a three-time individual
world champion.
The United States did well just to get
into medal competition. They had, to
win three consecutive matches, two in
tiebreakers,just to reach the semifinals.
