The Japanese national team for the Beijing Olympics Curling Women will face the final match of the qualifying league, the match against Switzerland, after 3:00 pm Japan time, and if they win, they will break through the qualifying league.


The opponent is Switzerland, who has already won the semi-final with 7 wins and 1 loss and won the world championship last year, but if you lose, it depends on the victory or defeat of other teams, which is very important to surely advance to the semi-final. It will be a great battle.



We will update the progress of the match from time to time.

4 battles in the great melee, 2 slots left for Japan to win

In the curling women's qualifying league, 10 teams will play round robin, and the top 4 teams will advance to the semi-finals.


If multiple teams line up with the same win or loss, the ranking will be determined by the results of the direct confrontation between the teams.


If it is still undecided, the average value obtained by subtracting two bad numbers from the result of the "Last Stone Draw" performed by each team before the match, and the smaller the value of the "Draw Shot Challenge", the higher the ranking.

At the moment, Switzerland with 7 wins and 1 loss and Sweden with 6 wins and 2 losses are deciding to advance to the semi-finals, and there is a battle over the remaining two slots.



[If Japan is ○, 3rd place is confirmed] If Japan


wins 5 wins and 3 losses, 3rd place will be confirmed and advance to the semi-finals will be decided.



[If it is Japan ●, it depends on the result of the other 3 games]


If you lose, it depends on the result of England vs ROC, Korea vs Sweden, Canada vs Denmark which will be held at the same time.


If all three teams in the UK, South Korea and Canada, which are currently 4 wins and 4 losses, are defeated, or if two teams are defeated, Japan will advance to the semi-finals.


If Britain and South Korea win and Canada loses, Japan loses to Britain and South Korea, so they will be eliminated from the qualifying league.


If all three teams win, Japan will be eliminated from the qualifying league.



If Britain and Canada win and South Korea loses, or if Canada and South Korea win and Britain loses, it depends on the results of the "Draw Shot Challenge".
