Canada stays unbeaten with extra-end win over Denmark at men's curling worlds

BASEL, Switzerland — Canada remained unbeaten at the men's world curling championship with a 10-8 extra-end win over Denmark in Sunday's early draw.

The Canadians held the hammer in the extra end, and skip Kevin Koe calmly executed a takeout with his final stone to score two points.

Koe and his Calgary-based rink improved to 2-0 before facing the United States in a later draw.

Canada hasn't won world gold since 2012, when Glenn Howard was victorious at the same venue in Basel.
