Day 4: Canada sweeps all games with wins for both curling and hockey teams
 
March 6, 2019
 
KRASNOYARSK, Russia (U SPORTS) – Both Canadian curling and hockey teams were back in competition at the 29th Winter Universiade on Day 4 of the Games. It was a sweep of the games as the women’s curling team defeated the Czech Republic while the men’s curling teams beat Switzerland and Sweden. On the hockey side, it was not easy being a Swiss as the women’s squad won 8-2 over Switzerland while the men’s club also won 6-2 over the Switzerland.
 
 
As the action picked up on the day 4, Canada also had more Top 20 performances. Alexander Maycock (Nipissing; Orangeville, Ont.) stood out as he skied to a fantastic 19th place result in a field of 83 in men’s cross country individual sprint. His result advanced him to the quarterfinals against a tough field. In addition, Corey Farber (Western; Richmond Hill, Ont.) finished 14th in men’s snowboard parallel slalom race plus Richard Moss (Guelph; Toronto, Ont.) was 15th in the same event.
