    Winter Sports thread

    Congratulations to the Scottish women's curling team who have just won gold at the European Championships in Russia, beating the, until now, unbeaten defending champions 8-2 in the final! A very young team - lead by 21 year old Eve Muirhead. Well done girls!!

    Why am I not surprised that there was no mention of it on breakfast television this morning? Am I being paranoid in thinking that if it had been an English team or even if the girls had been playing under the banner of GB, as they do in the Olympics, that much more would have been made of this brilliant win?

    The official tournament website, which has been poor throughout, has the score the other way around...

    I agree - the website had been poor - as has the TV coverage. The coverage this morning was extremely badly edited but, thankfully, it didn't take away from the girls win - well done them!

    As an ex curler I was really thrilled for them, silver last year, this year gold. The skip is only 21 and the third is still a junior so hopefully great things to come from them.

    Further congratulations required for Eve Muirhead and her rink of Claire Hamilton, Vicki Adams and Anna Sloan who have just won the world title in Latvia, surely making them favourites for the Olympic title in Sochi next year!
