Olympic season

This being a Winter Olympics season, there is bound to be increasing media interest in the curling teams which will represent GB at Vancouver. Here's a note of an early story.

BBC Radio 5 Live will air an interview with David Murdoch tomorrow (Monday, September 7) at 10 pm. The interview with the skip of the Olympic men's squad, who is the reigning world champion, is part of a Winter Olympics Special.

The half hour programme will include an interview with Andy Hunt, Chief Executive of the British Olympic Association, about the general preparations leading up to the Olympics in a number of sports. The story is on British Curling's website here.

The GB Olympics men's team open their campaign against Sweden on February 16 - the full draw can be downloaded from the WCF website here.
