The Men's Final

The Men's Final saw the young Danish side skipped by Rasmus Stjerne take on the experience of Thomas Ulsrud's Norwegians.

There was little between the teams, a single two point end, End 6, making the difference in a low-scoring game. The Norwegians came home one point in front, and Thomas made a perfect draw to the tee for his win. Norway are the Le Gruyere European Curling Champions 2010!

Hard work from the Danes.

All the details and stats are here.

PS It took a third game, but France retained their place in the Men's World Championship, beating off the Italian challenge. Latvia lost their place in the Women's World Championship to the Czech Republic, again after a third game.
