Oskar Erikkson returns to defend for Sweden, this time paired with Almida De Val. The duo is one of eight new pairings competing in their first World Mixed Doubles Championship together.

In addition to a world championship title, the 20 participating nations are vying for one of the seven spots at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games available through the tournament.

Canada scored two points in the sixth end to re-take the lead, at 6-5.

Then, in the seventh end, the Czechs were unfortunate to only score one point, when an angle-raise by Zuzana Paulova just failed to move a Canadian stone enough to give them a multiple-point score.

New Restrictions for the 2021 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship

Before the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, there was already a plan to narrow the field of competition at the World Mixed Doubles. According to the World Curling Federation (WCF), last year’s tournament in Kelowna, Canada was supposed to debut the 20-nation field. For the majority of the 13-year history of the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, any Member Associations could enter. In 2019 entries were limited to 48 Member Associations.

While the number of teams has been changed, the competition format remains the same, utilizing group-play. The 20 teams have been divided into two groups, Group A and Group B, each containing 10 teams.
