17 Jan 2013 – The New Zealand Junior Men's curling team will be returning home from the Pacific-Asia Championships with bronze medals, equalling the best-ever finish by a Kiwi side at this under-21 event. Their 5 win - 4 loss record included one win against Korea and two each against Japan and Australia.
But the Korean side eventually proved their undoing, beating the NZ side 7-3 in their semi-final. China went on to beat Korea for the gold medal.
