March 05, 2017 (PyeongChang, Korea) – Led by Rosanna Crawford’s brilliant opening leg where she posted the second-fastest time Team Canada finished 8th as Germany topped Norway in second as the Czech Republic took third in a photo finish with Sweden. Team USA crossed the line in 14th.
“I was ready to go home after the World Championships, but after some good long discussions with my coach, I understood the importance of coming to see the Olympic venue and fielding a relay team. These were the best races of the year, and I finally felt like I was racing and not just surviving. It was a great day for Canada,” said Crawford.
The Canucks were in third place after the midway point of the race when Julia Ransom shot clean and handed off to Megan Tandy in third. Tandy, a two-time Olympian, dropped one more spot before Emma Lunder brought the Canucks home in eighth.
The German women’s season sweep of the relays guaranteed them the Relay Globe.
