Kitzbuehel roundup

Don't they scrub up well: Team Scotland ready to party! L-R: Alan Smith, Gillian Howard, Karen Strang; David Mundell. Finished fifth in the rankings at the event.

Today's caption competition photo is from the final of the European Mixed Curling Championship 2008!

Let's hear it for the runners-up. This is second Martin Snitil.

A good coach knows how to make his team smile at the fourth end break!

One has to feel sorry for the Russian team finishing just out of the medals. This is skip Alexander Kirikov.

Rainer Schopp launches a German missile!

Let's hear it again for the silver medalists - skip Jiri Snitil!

This is what I was trying to explain in the previous post. Snitil has to raise the red stone his brush is beside to split out the red German stone on the tee.

These are the winners of the Fair Play awards at the championship: Jaana Hamalainen from Finland (I hope I got this right) and John Jo Kenny, skip of the Irish team.

The eyes have it. Melanie Robillard, the German lead.

Let's hear it for the runners-up - Czech third Hana Synackova.

And lead Karolina Pilarova. She's the shy one who doesn't like looking up for the camera!

Pics by Bob. That's it from Kitzbuehel. Hope you enjoyed the week seen through Curling Today's eyes!
