European 2014 Midway Update

Half way through the Round Robin portion of the European Championship has all going quite well for our Academy clients – RUSSIA. Our Women have put themselves in a favorable position by winning their first 5 matches, while the Men’s Team starts this day with a 3-2 record. The Athletes on both teams have performed well and rank at our near the top in Individual performance rankings, which hopefully is at least partly because of our Curling Academy methods and training over the last few seasons.

Still many more games to go and many bridges to cross!
