European Junior Challenge

The European Junior Curling Challenge got underway yesterday in Prague, and runs through to Friday. Ten junior women's teams are taking part (including England), and thirteen junior men's teams, to find one further European qualifier for each division of the World Junior Curling Championships, to be held this year in Flims, Switzerland, March 6-14.

Follow the results here. There's a photo gallery here, and Josef Podrábský has already posted one of his videos here. Enjoy!

It hardly seems a year ago that Glen Muirhead's team secured a place for Scotland's junior men at the 2009 World Junior Championships in Vancouver, see here. But this season, both Scotland's junior men and women already have their places at Flims, so we can watch the outcome in Prague somewhat dispassionately!
