Germany keep winning, take 3rd Annual Identa Cup

Germany won the 3rd Annual Identa Cup, held this past weekend in Schwenningen, Germany, heading a 10 team field with 8 points from 5 games. The field included the Italian, Swiss and Slovakian national teams as well a team from the Czech Republic and domestic teams from Switzerland and Italy.

Germany put on an impressive performance at the 2009 Worlds Qualifying tournament, losing only to fellow qualifiers China in the 9 game round robin. (See posts for November 19/20 2008) It will be interesting to see how they match up with the more established teams at the Worlds starting February 21st in Vancouver.

Interesting to see how our "new and improved" Team Canada matches up against the more established teams.
