Canada has a historic curling trifecta in Sochi.

Jim Armstrong's rink showed its class and experience on the sometimes tricky playing surface at the Ice Cube Curling Centre on Saturday to defeat Russia 8-3 and win the gold medal at the Paralympic Winter Games.

The victory comes on the heels of Canada's podium-topping performances in both men's and women's curling at last month's Olympics and marks the first time a country has won all three tournaments in the same year.

Meanwhile, Britain defeated China 7-3 to win the bronze.

Canada has dominated wheelchair curling since the sport made its Paralympic debut eight years ago, winning gold at both the 2006 and 2010 Games to go along with triumphs in the 2009, 2011 and 2013 world championships.

Up 5-2 in the sixth end, Canada capitalized on one of a number of miscues by Russia to grab a commanding lead.
