VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Canada won the gold medal in its No. 2 sport of curling Saturday, with Kevin Martin's team defeating a Norwegian foursome that charmed the Olympics with their celebrated flamboyant trousers.
The 6-3 victory gave Canada its 13th gold medal, matching the mark for the most by any nation at a Winter Olympics — and it gave Martin the Olympic title he has coveted most for so long.
"Today and all week he was amazing," Canadian second Marc Kennedy. "We had an all-around good team game today, and you couldn't have it at a better time."
