World Mixed Doubles Championships

World Mixed Doubles to Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy
PERTH, Scotland — The World Curling Federation (WCF) has confirmed Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy, as the host city for the 2009 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship.

The championship, scheduled for April 18-26, will be the second-ever WMDCC ever held, following the inaugural 2008 championship at Vierumaki, Finland in February. The 2008 World Mixed Doubles Championship was captured by Switzerland (Irene Schori and Toni
Müller) which defeated host Finland (Anne Malmi and Jussi
Uusipaavalniemi) by a 5-4 score in the final. Sweden earned bronze, while Norway and Canada rounded out the top five.

“The World Curling Federation is delighted to bring the second World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship to Cortina D’Ampezzo,” said Les Harrison, WCF president.

“The first World Mixed Doubles was a spectacular display of pure shotmaking and high-scoring action. We saw traditional curling powers struggle against emerging nations who have taken to this new curling discipline with vigour and enthusiasm. This show will be something for Cortina to remember.”

The inaugural WMDCC was visited by IOC Member Peter Tallberg, who spoke favourably of the new discipline.

The 2009 World Mixed Doubles will precede the 2010 World Men’s Curling Championship, which will also he held in Cortina. This will mark the first World Men’s Championship ever hosted by Italy.

The 2008 World Mixed Doubles featured 24 teams (pairs). Depending upon the number of member association entries, the dates of the 2009 World Mixed Doubles in Cortina D’Ampezzo may adjust slightly. Entries are due in November, 2008.
