Swiss women slide out of curling World Championships

The disappointment was clear to see on Manuela Kormann's face


The Swiss women's team are out of the curling World Championships in North Dakota, after losing to Canada 5-6.

In their tie-break game, the Swiss were fighting for the last place in the Bismarck semi-finals.

The two teams proved good sparing partners with extra time needed before the deadlock could be broken.

Canada will now go on to face Scotland in the semi-finals with Sweden going head-to-head with Norway.

It was a disappointing finish for the Swiss given that they knocked out the two-time world champions, Denmark, 10-5 earlier in the competition.

Despite strong performances throughout the tournament, the Swiss team, captained by Manuela Kormann, will now have to settle with fifth position.

In the end the women went the same way as the Swiss men's team, who were knocked out on Wednesday while trying to qualify for the semi-finals.
