Lineup for the finals at Champery

Eve Muirhead and her Scotland team will meet Stina Viktorsson's Swedes in the final of the Le Gruyere European Curling Championships in Champery tomorrow. Sweden beat Russia in the 'semifinal' match tonight, Stina, two up in the tenth, playing a last stone clearance past a guard for her win. Lucy no more!

Norway, skipped by Thomas Ulsrud, will play Rasmus Stjerne's Danish side who knocked out Christof Schwaller, the local favourite, this afternoon.

It's hard to believe how quickly the week has gone by! Last day tomorrow. Can Eve, Kelly, Lorna and Annie become the first Scottish women's team to win Euro gold since Betty Law, Jessie Whiteford, Beth Lindsay and Isobel Ross won at the very first event in Megeve, France, in 1975?
