Russia win season's first International

Russia went 4-0 to win the 12 team Danske Internationale Kørestole Curling Cup, the first event of a busy pre-Paralympic international calendar in Taarnby, Denmark. Germany placed second on points with a 3-1 record. Scotland and Sweden were also 3-1 while the Norway I team (they split their squad) were 1-3. Games were played over just 6 ends and full results are HERE.

Russia did not qualify for the 2009 Worlds or the 2010 Paralympics, but are assured of a place as hosts of the 2014 Games.

The next big international event is at the Halden Curling Centre in Norway, October 16-18.
