The Dutch curling men again suffered a defeat at the World Championship in Calgary on Tuesday.

The team of national coach Shari Leibbrandt lost 10-4 to Sweden, which is the defending champion.

A place in the first six countries and therefore direct placement for the Olympic Games of 2022 is normally no longer feasible for the Netherlands, where Jaap van Dorp is the skip.

With seven defeats and only one victory, the Netherlands is in fourteenth and last place.

Germany, which has played one game less, is the only other country to win one.

With a place outside the top six, the chance of a ticket for the Beijing Games is not completely gone for the Orange.

There will be a final Olympic qualifying tournament.

The curlers, who finished eleventh, tenth and tenth respectively in the previous three World Cups, still play against Germany, Japan, Switzerland, the United States and Italy at the current World Cup.
