British Olympic Teams

From the British Curling Association Website:

The following athletes have been nominated to represent Great Britain at the Winter Olympic Games to be held in Torino, February 2006.
Women's rink : Lyn Cameron, Debbie Knox, Jackie Lockhart, Rhona Martin, Kelly Wood.
Men's rink : Euan Byers, Ewan MacDonald, David Murdoch, Warwick Smith, Craig Wilson.

As it turns out these are exactly the teams that were sent to the European Championships earlier this month in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Both teams did reasonably well; the men's team won a bronze, and the women's team was eliminated in a tie-breaker. They have a couple of months to make themselves a real team. Should be interesting to watch!

I am particularly pleased to see that Rhona Martin and Debbie Knox were able to return to the Olympics.
