overwhelming gold medal favorite for the Sochi Games.

The Canadians' struggles have given renewed hope to their rivals not least Sweden, which tops the standings with a 2 for 2 record.

The Canadians didn't use that as an excuse they had plenty of their own problems to worry about.

Joining Sweden in making a good start to round robin play was Norway, the 2010 silver medalists who have become much more popular for their fashion sense than their curling.

This time, they donned the Ice Blocks range a mixture of red, white, blue and gray squares and rectangles.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) Maybe the men's Olympic curling tournament won't be such a procession for Canada, after all.

"We didn't curl well at all and got what we deserved," Canada player Ryan Harnden said. "We're not sharp, not in a rhythm, not making our shots."

The Ice Cube was one of the hottest tickets in Sochi on Monday. Bagpipers led the teams on for each session and there was a regal feel to proceedings, with Prince Hakan of Norway, Princess Anne of Britain and Prince Albert of Monaco watching from the stands.

Sweden's two wins have come against two of its fiercest rivals in Europe. A tense 7 5 win over Switzerland the reigning European champion was followed by an 8 4 victory against Britain.

Britain, China and Denmark all finished the day with one win to their name. Russia is 0 for 2 after losing to Britain 7 4 and Denmark 11 10 after an extra end, disappointing the horn blowing, thunderstick clapping home fans who created a lively atmosphere throughout the day.

"I'm a little bit surprised," Sweden player Fredrik Lindberg said. "But they have never been abroad to play a championship and that's something to consider. And they are expected to win and obviously it has to be a big pressure on them.

The Norwegians were the talk of the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 for wearing a range of funky, diamond printed pants during their games. They are continuing the trend here, and emerged for their first game against the United States in the evening with another snazzy pattern on their pants.
