Canada's women and men are bringing home gold medals from the senior world curling championships in Stavanger, Norway.

Sherry Anderson and her rink from Nutana Curling Club in Saskatoon rolled to a 10-1 drubbing of Denmark to successfully defend their title.

Bryan Cochrane's Ontario foursome was forced to play an extra end but pulled out a 7-5 win to give Canadian men 11 gold and seven silver as they have appeared in the final in every edition of the event since its debut in 2002.

In a tightly contested mixed doubles final, Canada's Jocelyn Peterman and Brett Gallant made a draw for two in the seventh end and headed to the final end tied 5-5 with Scotland.
