After getting his run at the World Curling Championships in Canada off to solid start with back to back wins, China's Ji Yan Song was looking to get his rink back on track as they took on France.

China, looking to avoid a fifth straight loss that would all but end their hopes of reaching the playoff round.

China's Ji got off to a decent start to the game, after allowing France one in the first...his draw for two in the second would give China the lead...but it would be the only time they were in front all game.

France would add one in the third, three in the fourth...and roll on to a big 10-3 win.

France improves to 5-2, China...now 2-5. Ji and his Chinese rink have four round robin games left and will more than likely have to win them all.

The Chinese, with games ahead against South Korea, the USA, Canada and Norway. Canada currently leads the Worlds with Jeff Stoughton's rink a perfect 7-0.
