World Mixed Doubles: Final Report

Mixed Doubles Final: Switzerland 11 Russia 2.
Bronze Medal: France 8 Sweden 6.

Leslie Ingram-Brown reports from Saint Paul:

"The Mixed Doubles final was a one sided affair thanks to a five in the first end to Switzerland. In my opinion Sven Michel and Alina Paetz were the outstanding Mixed Double of the week with a most competent coach in Luzia Ebnother who confessed that the gold medal was her first at international play.

France won the Bronze Medal defeating Sweden 8-6."
