Ice Melts in Innsbruck

Team GB was due on the ice at 09.00 this morning for their first game against Austria at the Winter Youth Olympic Games. That session has been rescheduled.

An official communication, issued at 08.00, reads "Red Group Session 1 rescheduled.

The Red Group Session 1, planned start time on 14 Jan 2012 at 9:00, has been rescheduled. The new date and start time is 17 Jan 2012 at 16:00.

The Blue Group Session 1 will still take place as scheduled on 14 Jan 2012 at 12:30.

An electrical issue during the night caused some melting of the ice. Technicians have fixed the problem."

This means that Duncan, Angharad, Thomas and Rachel will have their first game in the competition against Sweden this afternoon.
