According to TSN on Tuesday, Canadian Olympic champion Kevin Martin of Edmonton, Alberta delivered one of the most memorable comebacks in curling history.

Down 7-4 after eight ends, Martin scored four points in the ninth end and then stole a point in the tenth end en route to a remarkable 9-7 win over Ontario's Glenn Howard. With the victory, Martin improves to 4-0 and is tied on top of the men's standings of the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials in Winnipeg with Brad Jacobs of Sault. Ste. Marie, Ontario.

A major reason why Martin got back into the game was because of missed shots by Howard and his second Brent Laing.

Jacobs stole four points in the eighth end in a 9-4 victory over Calgary's Kevin Koe. The only other team in the field who is above .500 is Martin's fomer third, John Morris of Kelowna, British Columbia, who defeated Winnipeg's Jeff Stoughton 11-5 tonight after losing the morning draw to Mike McEwen of Winnipeg 7-5.

On the women's side, Edmonton's Valerie Sweeting and Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones leads the pack at 3-1. Jones bounced back Tuesday with a 7-2 win over Rene Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, while Sweeting lost her first game of the competition by losing 6-5 to Edmonton's Heather Nedohin.
