CC Aarau ran the perfect tournament in Prince George. In the final match, Skip Terenzoni & Co. defeated South Korea.
It was 6:49 PM local time when Alina Patz had to play the last stone in the World Cup Final. The task was clear: to get the South Korean lead stone out of the house by taking it out. Pätz kept his cool, which means: CC Aarau’s soccer team beat South Korea 7:6 and celebrated their third consecutive world title. Suddenly the Olympic disappointment (4th place) is far away. The queens of their sports celebrated the great resurrection of Prince George.
Melanie Barbezat, Esther Neuschwander and skip Silvana Terenzoni and Patz became world record champions with a 7:6 in a small Canadian town in British Columbia. They were the first women’s team in the history of the World Cup, which began in 1979, to win the triple title. Terrenzoni was happy then: “It is very difficult to become a world champion only once. The fact that we did it 3 times is indescribable. “
14 matches – 14 wins
The CC Arau football team also set a world championship record with an impressive winning streak: they won all 14 matches, 12 of the robin matches, plus the semi-finals against Sweden and the final. Only Canadians around Jennifer Jones as world champions in 2018 also set a record of 14:0 wins. Only the Canadian team around Rachel Homan became world champions unbeaten in 2017.
In keeping with the impressive performances throughout the World Cup the Swiss played at the highest level in the final, the most important match. They noted the global share of 93 percent of successful stones. Alina Patz also scored an exact fourth place at 93 percent.
The lead after the third finish never gave up
The basis for the victory over the South Koreans led by 2018 Olympic silver medalist Kim Un-jung was laid by the Swiss at the second finish with a three-man house to advance 3-0. As a result, they never gave up this feature. At the tenth end they brought the lost stone to 7:6.
The achievements of the Swiss women during World Cup week cannot be underestimated when you consider that they first had to deal with their disappointment at the Olympics. As in Prince George, they were the dominant crew on Round Robin in Beijing – with 8:1 wins – before finishing fourth empty-handed.
