SOCHI, Russia - 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.
