Team Drummond Savour Podium Finish To 2017

Posted on

British Curling’s Team Drummond bounced back from a semi final loss to win the third place play-off after they beat Norway 8-5 at the Qinghai International in China. The podium finish marked one of their best results since the rink was formed at the start of the season.

Sochi silver medallist Greg Drummond who skipped the team said: “We had a really good event in China, which we used as preparation for the Scottish Championships. It was good for us to get into the ten end championship mindset.

“Over the course of the week we felt we progressed as a team and the work we have been putting in behind the scenes really showed in our performances on ice. We felt we did enough to win every game we played, however we faced an equally well playing Chinese team in the semi final and they progressed to the final and we had to settle for the bronze game against Norway,” he said.

“I thought the team showed some real character to bounce back from a disappointing semi final loss and win the bronze game and end the tournament on a high note.

“We will look to continue this good progress we have made into the new year where we have events in Perth and Hamburg, prior to the Scottish Championships.”
