The Swiss players are still flawless at the World Cup, but they cannot completely impress Norway.

CC Aarau was also victorious in its sixth World Cup appearance in Sydney, Canada. Switzerland beat Norway 6-3.

Skip Silvana Tirinzoni and Co. were not. In serious danger of breaking their winning streak. However, the defending champions also benefited from some of their rivals' shortcomings. Norway, with skip Marian Rorvik, “gifted” Switzerland a stolen stone in the first and fifth ends. In the sixth round, Kristen Skaslin was not a good figure and lost a two-man house with a completely unsuccessful final stone.

Despite these mistakes, Switzerland was never able to qualify and had to qualify until the tenth end.
