  • SANDRA SCHMIRLER TEAM - CURLING

    Finalists Special Guests Past Winners Ticket Order Form


    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS With all the great Canadian women's curling teams throughout the years, it's difficult to pinpoint which one was the greatest of all time. But the Sandra Schmirler foursome from Regina would be a hard choice to argue.

    Schmirler, third Jan Betker, second Joan McCusker, lead Marcia Gudereit and Anita Ford, added the game's biggest prize to their mantle by winning the Olympic gold medal at Nagano, Japan. They defeated Denmark in the championship game 7-5 after a terrifying extra end victory in the semifinal over Britain. In all they won eight of nine games throughout the Olympic tournament which they entered as the overwhelming favorites for gold.

    "We came into the Olympics scared, really scared," said Guderei. "It's like everytime you step on to the ice you had to prove yourself and there was a lot of pressure on us." Schmirler also has a Canadian women's record three world titles won in 1993, 1994 and 1997. She qualified for the Olympics at the trials in November 1997 executing one of the most dramatic shots ever in women's curling in the final game.
