Team Great Britain's Jim Sellar, the likely fifth in Vancouver, told the Bellshill Speaker that he will retire from competitive sports if successful in Vancouver. Sellar (53), who is also a champion bowler, has curled for nine years and has represented Scotland at five World Championships, winning gold in 2004.

Would appear Mr. Sellar's retirement took a step forward lately.

I watched Jim Armstrong practice today at Richmond. He is obviously in considerable pain, unable to effectively use his injured shoulder, and virtually unable to turn his head and neck.

I understand the CCA are bringing in more troops to "scrimmage" with Team Canada as early as this weekend.

I don't want to read too much into this, but, who knows?

I was there, as well, and Jim certainly doesnt look comfortable. He was joking around with the other players, but I see him out there all the time, and it certainly isn't the Armstrong of old.

If Jim can't play, Team Canada is no better than many other teams at Paralympics.

Any update, Eric?
