44 games and counting. Approaching 2 years. Canada is one week away from being undefeated at the World Championships, men's and women's, for 2 YEARS!! The last Canadian loss at a world championship was Niklas Edin defeating Kevin Koe in the RR back in 2016. Of course Koe would go on to win his next four games en route to the world title and Canada has not looked back since.
As the 2018 World Men's Curling Championship is set to hit the ice in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend all eyes will be on Canada's Brad Gushue. The team from The Rock come to Vegas fresh of defending their Brier title a few weeks ago in Regina and will look to go 2 for 2 on the #defendtheice theme by trying to replicate their world title victory from a season ago in Edmonton, AB.
Gushue will walk into the Orleans Arena as favourites but they will not be considered overwhelming favourites. Watch out for the #SwedishVikings who have revenge on their minds!
