According to the Canadian Press, Canada lost to Norway 9-5 at the 2014 World Curling Championship in Beijing on Tuesday.

The Canadian team, which is represented by skip Kevin Koe out of the Glencoe Curling Club in Calgary, got off to a slow start against the Norwegians, a curling team skipped by 2010 Olympic Winter Games silver medalist Thomas Ulsrud.

Ulsrud's team who are known for their creative pants, picked up three points in the second end when Koe was a little too aggressive with his play calling and then stole a key point in the third end when Koe racked off his own guard with his final stone.

With the victory, Norway improves to 6-1 and sole possession of first place, while Canada is in a second place tie with Japan and Switzerland at 5-2.

Earlier on Tuesday, Canada defeated the United States 7-4. Canada's next game will be on Tuesday evening Calgary time (7:00 p.m.) against Switzerland, one of the teams Canada is tied with for second place.
