Weekend Results from New Zealand and Denmark

If you've been following the 100% Pure New Zealand Winter Games, you will know that Hungary's Gyorgy Nagy and Ildiko Szekeres won the Mixed Doubles tournament. The final standings are here.

Korea won both the men's and women's competitions. Kim Chang Min, Kim Min Chan, Seong Se Hyeon, Seo Young Seon, Oh Eun Su were the men's team who defeated China in the final (here), and Shin Mi Sung, Lee Hyun Jung, Lee Seul Bee, Gim Un Chi, Kim Ji Sun were the women's team, with China again the runners-up (here).

Peter de Boer, Scott Becker, Phil Dowling and Iain Craig finished fourth in the men's event.

Nearer home, in Denmark, the junior men's event in the Golden Danish Junior Open 2011 in Taarnby, the first event in the European Junior Curling Tour, was won by Rasmus Wranå's Swedish team. Norway's Kristine Davanger skipped her team to win the junior women's event.

The details are here, with a great pic of the two winning teams. No Scottish representation in this one, with our top teams involved in squad training this weekend... more about that from me tomorrow.
