According to the 2013 Winter Universiade website, Team Canada won its fourth medal at the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy. It came in the event of men's curling on Thursday.

The team skipped by Canadian flag bearer Brendan Bottcher of Edmonton, Alberta, defeated Norway 6-5 to capture the bronze medal.

The Canadian squad which also included third Mick Lizmore, second Brad Thiessen and lead Karrick Martin, all of Edmonton, finished with a record of 7-2 in the round robin before losing to Great Britain 7-4 in the semi-finals. Karrick Martin is the son of Canadian Olympic champion (from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver) Kevin Martin, who was also the gold medal winner in men's curling at the 2008 World Men's Curling Championship from Grand Forks, North Dakota.
