SOCHI, February 11 (R-Sport) – Russia and Canada surged to the top of the women's curling standings after winning their second round-robin games on Tuesday at the Sochi Olympics.

Anna Sidorova's Russians were trailing 4-1 after three ends against the United States, but managed to change the course of the match and snatch a 9-6 victory at the Ice Cube Curling Center on the Black Sea coast.

The Canadians, skipped by the veteran Jennifer Jones, threw down the gauntlet by destroying reigning champion Sweden 9-3 to take revenge for defeat in the Vancouver final four years ago.

Two-time Olympic silver medalist Switzerland also joined Canada and Russia at the summit with two wins, as they managed to edge out Denmark in the last end for a 7-6 victory.

Elsewhere, Korea beat Japan 12-7.

The Olympic curling tournament features a round robin where everyone plays everyone else and the top four teams in the final standings progress to the playoffs.

The gold medal game is February 20.
