Elsewhere in the curling world

Sweden's Oscar Eriksson, with Kristian Lindstrom playing fourth stones, stole the extra end of the Radisson SAS Oslo Cup final against Thomas Ulsrud, after a measure! Ulsrud had knocked out David Murdoch's Team GB in the qualifier to reach the quarterfinal. Go here to link to all the results. It was great to be able to watch the webcast - I was home in time to see the last couple of ends of the final. Good commentary too.

Jennifer Jones' Canadian side beat Anette Norberg to win the women's event. A 'well done' to Eve Muirhead's GB team in reaching the semis, where they fell to the Canadians. Sarah Reid and Gillian Howard both reached the quarters in Oslo.

Tom Brewster, Lynn Cameron, Colin Campbell and Michelle Silvera have won one and lost one in Prague at the European Mixed Championship. All the results and standings are on the event website here. There are some good (and unusual) photos of the event too.

And thanks to Hugh Stewart for this pic from the Sadie Anderson which was held at Ayr this weekend.

Was this the furthest travelled participant at Ayr? Vicki Dunlop (delivering), in Team Cunningham, lives and works on Shetland! Pic © Hugh Stewart.
