Armchair Olympics 7

Mike Haggerty's report on the first of GB's games last night is on the RCCC website here. The World Curling Federation has reports and a photo from each round here.

But the place to find great curling photos is here, on the official Vanoc site. What a great collection of pics! The photo of David Murdoch above is by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images and just captures the essence of that first match against Sweden.

Just watching the sport on the box doesn't give any impression of what actually being in Vancouver must be like. Each day the host committee publishes a video which takes in more than the sport, providing medal results, arts and entertainment highlights and VANOC updates every day of the Games - check these out here.

Jennifer Jones has her observations of the first day of curling here, and is well worth a read.
