Another GOLD for Scotland - Kinross International Oct 15-17, 2013
Kinross International Oct 15-17, 2013
by Tony Zummack (Team GB Coach)
This past week Team Great Britain was in action against 10 other teams and 5 of those are representing their countries at the Paralympic Games this coming March at the 6th Kinross International Wheelchair Curling Bonspiel.
After section play it was decided by 1 point that GBR would finish in first place while Sweden secured second place in the Black Section. In the Red Section Norway finished top of the table with Italy finishing in second position.
The gold medal game was very tight and required an extra end to decide. After a good draw around a corner guard by GBR and a failed take out by NOR, GBR won gold medals for the second time this season.
Congratulations to Aileen Neilson, Gregor Ewan, Robert McPherson and Tom Killin as they continue preparations with the Canadian Open this coming week. In the bronze medal match SWE controlled the entire game against ITA to secure their bronze medals
Finals; GBR - Gold NOR - Silver SWE - Bronze
