Bubble Wrap-up ft. Silvana Tirinzoni

The curling bubble has come to an end with the conclusion of the women’s worlds. Kevin and Warren share their final thoughts including how concerned should Curling Canada be with missing the podium and if all the governing bodies of the sport should follow the same tiebreaker procedure. The Facebook group has been buzzing and Kevin and Warren also weigh in on the latest hot topics such as banning players from sweeping an opponent’s stone behind the tee line. 

Swiss skip Silvana Tirinzoni joins the show (26:00) to discuss how it started at age 10 jotting down goals in a notebook to how it’s going after winning her second straight world championship. Tirinzoni also chats about how Switzerland became the dominant country in the women’s worlds, the uncommon structure of playing third and skipping with Alina Paetz throwing last, the importance of practicing draws to the button, scoring the first eight-ender in the history of the world women’s curling championship and more. 

This podcast is produced by Warren Hansen and Amil Delic, mixed and sounded designed by Amil Delic, and hosted by Kevin Martin, Warren Hansen, and Jim Jerome. Additional editing support by Andrew Holland.
