Well, GBR lost (edited) the Bronze - so Glenn is in the same boat as Team Koe. Very Canadian of me to say, but 4th is not shameful. Not a podium, no. But a defeat? I would like to hear what Howard is saying to TeamMuirhead. Congratulations to Team JPN. #InTough. And GoKORgo.

" sigh..."

Guess my blurb dated the 21st., directed primarily at folks like yourself, did sting a little after all. TC.

GBR finished 4th. Japan gets bronze.

Really pleased for Satsuki and her Japanese team. Especially after the disappointment of last season, not qualifying for worlds, to win a medal for a country that is already infatuated with them is awesome!

Poor Eunjung she was devastated after that loss. Great to see coach Peter giving her a big hug. Would have liked to see the bear/medal presentations...but no Canadians so CBC didn't bother.

They showed the medal presentation online - very moving. Team Bow. Might still be up on the Oly's CBC site. I felt bad for them, but the crowd cheered and cheered.

Korea

This could be the SE Ri Pak moment for Korean curling. Korean golfers now are 50% or more top 20-30 on LPGA. Watch for the curlers to follow over the next 5-10 years.

Or not. As Team Koe remarked after their disappointing finish(I'm paraphrasing) each of these nations, including Korea, has exactly one team. All the resources, training and money goes to the one team. Can you name the second best Korean team? China? Swiss, Sweden or Denmark? No, because the talent pool is one molecule deep.

Swiiss also have Paetz, and Feltscher. Canada should be so lucky to have 3 of last 5 world champions. And Tiironzoni.ranks number 4 in the world

actually, you are wrong. most of those countries do have more than one good team

sweden's is probably the shallowest in all of europe of the big nations. no one coming up after edin and on the women's side they have isabella wrana and that's it.

switzerland has paetz, feltscher, stern, and witschonke

on the men's side they also have pfister , schwaller, and hess

norway has walstad and ramsfjell on the men's side. women's side isn't all that great

scotland has mouat, bryce and drummond on the men's side after smith. on the women's side they have jackson and flemming as well as muirhead

denmark is really in a bad state. they have no one after the top teams

china is much the same way. they have the top teams and that's basically it

korea on the mens side has soo-hyuk kim as the second best team and the world junior winning men's team as well. on the women's side they also have un-chi gim, min-ji kim and the junior women's team.

japan after morozumi on the men's side is'nt that good but the women have chiaki matsumura and ayumi ogasawara

so , while they aren't as deep as canada , no most of those countries don't have just the one team. you and koe are both wrong

I vote 1 team

In addition they play 95% in Canada taking up 5 or more of the top ten slots in the slams preventing young Canadian teams from gaining experience .

What if we funded 20 teams at $250,000 a year ...

Bigger problem is free guard rule that is a great equalizer - guarantees multiple winners - the best team doesn’t always win...

Tv is to blame
