This Is Just About The Best Curling Shot We've Ever Seen

Posted: Updated:

Well, that was unconventional.

Canadian curler Mike McEwen has thrown some pretty awe-inspiring rocks over the years, but this shot during the singles round of the Continental Cup on Friday may be his best ever.

The singles round consists of a trick shots scored between zero and five points. With one rock left, McEwen was down by six. He had nothing to lose, so he decided to add a little twist to his performance.

The result? A flawlessly-thrown stone that curling enthusiasts will be talking about for years to come.

Just like they'll be talking about Canada's triumphant win over Europe at the competition. A win captured for the first time without the aid of curlers from the United States.

That's a victory every bit as sweet as this shot.
