Korea and Norway contested the final of the World Wheelchair Championship in Sursee. Norway's Rune Lorentsen was the defending champion and held last stone coming down the final end 3-2 ahead. A miss gave Korea's Hak Sung Kim and his team another chance in an extra, but they could not get a stone hidden. Norway had won the 2008 title.
The United States won bronze when their team skipped by Augusto Perez beat Canada's Gerry Austgarden 8-1.
