Sweden wins 2nd straight gold in women's curling

BY foxsports • February 26, 2010

Sweden went the distance in capturing another gold medal in Olympic women's curling, beating a Canadian team cheered by a cowbell-clanging crowd.

Anette Norberg played through the din, nailing the last shot to give her team a 7-6 victory in an extra 11th end Friday to spoil the Canadian party.

Sweden defended its gold medal from Turin four years ago, defeating Cheryl Bernard's Canadian foursome before a sellout crowd of 5,600.

Norberg was unfazed by the deafening noise from the fans who packed the arena to cheer a team that was relatively unknown outside Canada until making this remarkable run.
