Vote for Anette

Sweden's Anette Norberg has been selected as a finalist for the 2011 Sportswoman of the Year (Team Sports Athlete) Award by the US-based Women’s Sports Foundation. You have until September 5 to vote for her at this page on Facebook. The instructions are in the second panel. (You have to 'Like' the Women's Sports Foundation first. When you do, it opens up the way to 'Like' Anette's photo which records your vote). If you are not on Facebook you can still vote. Find out how on this page.

It's great to see our sport get good publicity like this.

The photo above is by Leslie Ingram-Brown from last season's Capital One World Women's Curling Championship in Esbjerg. That's Scotland's Vicki Adams and Anna Sloan behind Anette. Vicki and Anna are members of Eve Muirhead's team for this season with Claire Hamilton. Good to see the team have their own Facebook page.
