Team Anna Hasselborg took historic Grand Slam victory

2020-01-19T21:13:06.516Z

Team Anna Hasselborg continues to impress. On Sunday night, the team's third straight Grand Slam victory came. No more straight wins have no team taken before. - It feels really cool, says Hasselborg.



Team Anna Hasselborg goes from clarity to clarity. The Swedes, who won the European Championships in Helsingborg in November, won tonight in the Canadian Yorkton team's third straight Grand Slam title after a dramatic final in the Canadian Open against last year's World Cup bronze medalists in team Kim Min-ji.

The final became a real shocker, which was decided first in the first round, where Lag Hasselborg took advantage of the last stone and won the match with 7–5.

- It was really a tough match, and it was so wonderful to have the last stone in the divide and get to decide for themselves, says Hasselborg to SVT Sport.

- We make a nice divorce and get the last one we wanted, and we simply put it!

What did you feel then?

- It was absolutely fantastic, really! Totally amazing!

Tangled record

The Grand Slam title was the team's fifth overall, and thus their third in a row. No other women's team has won more consecutive Grand Slam titles, and only one team (Canada's Rachel Homan) has won three consecutive races in the past.

- It feels fucking awesome, really! It is almost a little difficult to understand, that we have done it and that very few have done it before.

Can you explain that it's been so good for you this season?

- I don't really know if I'm being honest. But we've really had a good plan that we believe in, we've continued to work with our coach Wayne Middaugh and it feels like there's a lot going on right now. Both the technical and how we communicate on the ice and we have good self-confidence.

- It feels like everyone is playing well and backing each other up. It is the classic, that there are very many small things that are right.
