Annette Norberg left it late but claimed her third world title at Canada's expense at the Women's World Curling Championships in Esbjerg.

The double Olympic champion did it the hard way, with the scores tied 5-5 in the ninth end and with Canadian skip Amber Holland having the last stone advantage in the tenth.

But despite this, Norberg stayed strong while Holland committed some mistakes, allowing Sweden to steal two at the death and claim the crown in Denmark.

Although this was Norberg's third World Championship win, it was her first with the team of Cecilia Östlund, Sara Carlsson and Lotta Lennartsson and she couldn't have been happier with the support she received.

"I'm just thrilled about these girls and how they've performed, and how strong they are as a team after just a few months together," she said. "So I'm really, really proud."

Meanwhile, Norway's Henriette Løvar was handed the 2011 Frances Brodie Award, voted by the players for the individual who best personifies curling's values and good sportsmanship.
