Wheels in Vancouver

Attention returns to the Olympic/Paralympic Centre in Hillcrest Park, Vancouver, tomorrow, for the first games of the wheelchair curling at the Paralympics 2010. Go here to find the schedule and results.

Team GB is skipped by Mike McCreadie. I posted a photo of the team on the blog recently here. Their first game is a tough one, against the Canadians who are skipped by former Canadian Brier Champion Jim Armstrong.

Aileen Neilson describes her feelings in the run up to the Games here.

Eric Eales is wheelchair curling's biggest pundit. Read what he says about the prospects of all the teams in his wheelchair curling blog here. The WCF preview of the event is here. There's another photo of the GB team here, with details of webcast coverage of the event.
