KAMLOOPS, B. Cheap Bruins Jerseys .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. After struggling a little to make the final game, Koe emerged with his second Canadian mens curling championship, after a dominating 10-5 win over John Morris and British Columbia. "Thats the way we kind of do it sometimes," Koe said. "We cant seem to get firing on all cylinders all the time." Koe could have finished first at the Tim Hortons Brier this week but he lost his last round-round game to Quebec and created a three-way tie for top spot with B.C. and Manitoba. The tiebreaking formula gave B.C. hammer and choice of rocks in the 1-2 Page playoff game, which they won. Koe then had to play Quebec again, after they beat Manitoba in the 3-4 game to get into the final. Hes used to it, since he had to fight even harder to win his first title in 2010 when he came up from the 3-4 game. Alberta capitalized on B.C.s mistakes to score three big three-enders. If not for the needs of television, the handshakes would likely have come in eight but they played nine ends. It was a crushing end to a Cinderella week for Kamloops native son Jim Cotter, who throws fourth stones for B.C. and had been solid all week but made some of those mistakes that cost his team the game Sunday. "Jimmy had some uncharacteristic misses there and we were fortunate and when it did happen, we really capitalized," said Koe. "The first three was the big one." The numbers told the tale. Koe shot 92 per cent, Cotter 82 and B.C. skip and third stone Morris was at 72 per cent. "We just missed a couple of too many shots early," said Morris. "We were just a little bit fooled by the ice." This is the second loss in the big game in four months for the Morris-Cotter rink. They also lost the final at the Olympic trials to Brad Jacobs in December in Winnipeg. "Whether its in front of your home fans or in front of Winnipeg fans or wherever, its no fun," said Cotter. "Obviously you want to win, but thats curling, thats the way it goes. "They were bang on. They were making everything. Its tough to come back from that." As for what the future holds, he couldnt say. "I really havent thought too much about the future. . . I guess over the next few weeks or what not well reflect a little bit and kind of see where things are at and go from there." Uncertainty also hangs over Alberta, which, with the win, is now only one behind Manitobas record 27 Brier victories. Second Carter Rycroft, whose wife is pregnant, has said hes taking a year off curling and the win didnt change his mind. He was also named the most valuable player and shot 96 per cent in the final game. "This is it as far as me not curling next year," he said emphatically. Koe doesnt know what he future holds either. "I dont know what will happen with that, we havent talked about it, we havent even thought about," he said. "Nows the time to celebrate this win and well look forward to (being) Team Canada (at the world championship) in China and whatever happens, happens." Canadian Curling Association rules require that Team Canada retain at least three players to return to the Brier. Next year in Calgary is the first year Team Canada will automatically get a berth in the Brier. Its also the first year the bottom finishers will have to play their way in. Over the last three years, thats Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, as well as new entrants Nunavut and a separate Yukon team. The Brier went well for B.C. until Sunday night, although they finished in a three-way 9-2 tie with Manitoba and Alberta at the top of he round robin. They beat Alberta in the 1-2 game to move straight to the final and opened well with a deuce in the first end, setting the sellout home-town crowd into a frenzy. But Alberta responded with a three in the second end after Morris was heavy and rolled through. Cotter did the same thing in four when he flashed on a freeze attempt, had to draw for one and accomplished that only by a slim margin. In five, with rocks scattered around the 12, Cotter lost his shooter, letting Koe gently tap a B.C. rock back to score another three. A final three in the sixth end made it 9-4. Earlier in the day, Manitobas Jeff Stoughton took the bronze medal winning 9-5 in nine ends after scoring two in the first and stealing two in the second on a missed Quebec runback. But both Stoughton and Quebec skip Jean-Michel Menard said it was a game they dont even think should be part of the Brier. "Ill try to be nice, but this game shouldnt exist," said Menard. "Its useless." Boston Bruins Store .

PETERSBURG, Fla.Olympic hockey gold medallist Crista Cullen hopes to build on the momentum from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and improve womens participation in sport. Team GB finished second in the table at Rio ahead of China after claiming a record 67 medals, two more than they managed at the Games in London four years ago.Hockey international Cullen won bronze in the 2012 Games and helped the womens team to their first ever Olympic gold with a thrilling shoot-out win over the reigning champions, the Netherlands. Holding an Olympics at home and the legacy we were sort of expecting to fulfil after that, Cullen said. Subsequently we are not in the limelight for long enough periods of time and slowly slowly much of the Olympics sports sort of fall away.After the recent successes with the medal hall from GB I really hope that post Rio we are able to engage with the public, engage with women and try to maintain this really exciting roller-coaster that sport has created over the summer. Team GB returning from Rio Olympics after beating their target of 48 medals Olympic silver medallist Sharron Davies hails GBs success at Rio, but believes there still needs to be a lot more done to engage with young girls and raise the profile of womens sport.I do think it is a habit thing, we kind of lose tthe habit, Davies insisted. Custom Boston Bruins Jerseys. A lot of girls fall away at 14 or 15. They lose their way with sport. It doesnt become trendy. They dont want to be sweaty. They dont like the sports that are on offer.They sort of try to come back to it in their mid-20s when they realise that having fitness in their life is really important to stay in shape, to recover from kids and to look after themselves.Its that middle territory that we have to do some serious work on how do we keep young girls engaged in sport.British 24-year-old cyclist Becky James, who won two silver medals in the velodrome in Rio, told Sports Women how she was inspired to take up cycling at a young age when a British talent team visited her school.When I was 13/14 thats when they came to the school, James added. I dont think there would be many ways to get into cycling unless your family already do it. I was luckily enough that the testing came round the schools.I was that sort of age where I wasnt that keen on it I would prefer to go horse riding or out with my friends. I wasnt fully committed to it at that age.I kind of just fell into the path in the end. I was lucky I had a really supportive family and I was very competitive because my brother wanted to do it so I followed his pat has well.
