Team Italy celebrates last shot win over Canada!

In Canada we expect our National Curling Teams to win…every time.  In the end, Canada DID win Paralympic Curling Gold…but they lost their last round robin game to Italy.  It was a heck of a finish, as the Italian skip was facing an almost impossibly  shot with his last stone to win. The rock had to squeeze between two high guards and then had to move two Canadian stones that were frozen together on the button. With four other rocks in the immediate vicinity, the shot  had to be perfect.  Somehow, he pulled it off! The reaction of the Italian team was sheer jubilation – as you’ll see here.  Specifically, Italy’s Gabriele Dallapiccola lost a control during his celebration.  Notice his teammate Angela Menardi’s reaction to him losing control.   Italy’s win did get them into a tie breaker with Sweden for a playoff spot (Sweden won).
