Salute to Sweden

I'm still in ECC09 mode! Here's a small tribute to the young Swedish team which won the Le Gruyere European Curling Championships at the weekend.

The skip of course is Niklas Edin

That's the team in conference. Can you name the four players? See below. I think we will be seeing a lot more of these curlers!

Here's the lead, Viktor Kjall
