29 Apr 2012 – Switzerland have continued their remarkable record at World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships. The Swiss team of Martin Rios and Nadine Lehmann beat Sweden's Per Noreen and Camilla Johansson 7-6 in the 2012 gold medal game to win their country's fourth championship title in the five year history of the event.

Claudia Toth and Christian Roth won the first ever WCF curling championship medal for Austria, winning the bronze medal game 12-7 against the USA pair Cristin and Brady Clark.

Earlier, New Zealand's Natalie Thurlow and John Campbell just failed to reach the playoff rounds, finishing fourth in their pool with 4 wins and 4 losses and 10th overall.

Player Reaction

Switzerland's Martin Rios said after their gold medal win, "I told her [teammate Nadine] that we were down four in the semifinal and we were in the same situation and I told her 'we can do it'. We were lucky in the seventh and eighth end. For the last one [shot], I think it was a pretty hard shot to do."

Sweden's Per Noreen commented, "I think we have been a little nervous and we both played a little bad with some misses on the last stone. I think we do a great match are we are happy for second place."
 His teammate Camilla Johansson added, "In the first half we played well and then we started to miss a few very important stones."
