TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - TSN's unmatched 2012-13 curling broadcast

CANADA CUP
Sweeping coverage of the CANADA CUP begins tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 28) at 10

the men's and women's finals. In total, TSN will air 40.5 hours of live 
curling from the CANADA CUP, taking place in Moose Jaw, SK (see complete

The CANADA CUP features seven men's and seven women's teams, each competing 
for $70,000 in prize money. The men's and women's champions will directly 
qualify for the 2013 Canadian Olympic Trials, which will determine Canada's 
representatives for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Russia. The 
champions will also be invited to the 2014 World Financial Group Continental 
Cup. 
TSN's acclaimed curling broadcast team is in Moose Jaw with Vic Rauter calling 
the action alongside Linda Moore, the 1985 Canadian and World Champion and 
1988 Olympic gold medallist, and Russ Howard, a two-time Brier champion and 
2006 Olympic gold medallist. 
This year's CANADA CUP features some of the biggest names in curling. The 
men's side includes Glenn Howard, Kevin Martin, Jeff Stoughton, Kevin Koe, 
Brad Gushue, Mike McEwen, and John Epping, while the women's field features 
Heather Nedohin, Jennifer Jones, Stefanie Lawton, Sherry Middaugh, and Cathy 
Overton-Clapham. 
Last year's CANADA CUP champions, Kevin Martin and Jennifer Jones, and last 
season's Canadian Team Ranking System leaders Glenn Howard and Heather 
Nedohin, have already qualified for the 2013 Canadian Olympic Trials.
