Homan going for gold

Canada's Rachel Homan has booked her ticket to the final at the women's world curling championship.

The Ottawa skip led her rink to a 7-3 win over Russia in today's Page playoff game between the top two round-robin teams in Beijing.

The win boosted Homan's record to a sparkling 12-0 at the tournament.

Russia will have a second chance to qualify for Sunday's gold-medal game in tomorrow's semifinal against either Anna Hasselborg of Sweden or Scotland's Eve Muirhead.
