Canada’s wheelchair curling team is 3-0 so far at the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games.

The Canadian wheelchair curling team, which includes vice-skip Dennis Thiessen of Sanford, picked up where they left off after big wins over Great Britain and Russia on March 8. They took on Sweden in a much-anticipated contest that featured two of the top-ranked teams in the tournament on March 9.

Canada eventually prevailed in a nail-biter of a last end which saw Sweden make its last shot just as time ran out. Sweden came up short in their attempt to tie the game and Canada now sits 3-0 after winning 7-4.

Today they take on the U.S. and Norway.  

Canada and Slovakia are the only teams who remain undefeated in round robin play.
