Sochi Paralympics: GB curlers claim back-to-back victories

March 10, 2014

Great Britain’s wheelchair curlers won two successive matches on Sunday to get their Winter Paralympic campaign back on track in Sochi.


Aileen Neilson’s rink (pictured above) beat Sweden 6-4 in their first game of the day, which was followed by an 8-4 defeat against South Korea.

“To come out of the day with two wins was what we wanted,” Neilson told BBC Sport afterwards. “I’m just delighted that the team worked really hard together. Our dynamics were brilliant and we supported each other.

Britain will now face Slovakia for their next game, today at 11:30 GMT.
