Glynhill Impressions

Right, here are some first impressions from this morning at the Braehead Rink where the Glynhill Ladies International is underway. You can find all the results here.

Above: Finland's Oona Kauste is in the head, watched behind by Jackie Lockhart and Karen Kennedy.

Jennifer Martin and Jonna McManus.

Good to see Jennifer Morrison on the ice again, substituting today in the Jennifer Martin team.

Happy volunteers, Nanette Davidson and Meta Ecclestone.

Jennifer Marshall was called up to play for Sweden's Team Kamp.

Latvia's alternate Una Grava. See 2012. See technology.

Chief Umpire Robin Shand is having nightmares about Russian women ...

... You see, Liudmila Privivkova is skipping the Anna Sidorova entry .....

... and Anna Sidorova is skipping the Olga Ziablikova team. Here she is in the head against Anna Hasselborg.

Caption required for this team Hasselborg discussion!

Swedish curlers are not prone to exaggeration, but, "Honestly, it was THIS BIG!"

Iveta Janatova was playing last stones for Team Hajkova from the Czech Republic.

Extra points if you can identify who is the 'Russian Curler of the Day'. (Answer below)

Rhiann Macleod and Caitlin Barr, front end of the Kerry Barr team.

Two young curlers, Vicky Wright and Mhairi Baird, are getting in some ice time before next week's Scottish Junior Championships, as Gail Munro's front end.
