Olympic Curling, M Session 8

Quite a day.

The CurlGirls are out and the American men are very much in.

The Canadian men lose to U-15, the Flying Finn, who remarkably shoots 59 per cent (zero on two draws and just 65 on 18 hits) compared to Brad Gushue's 75. The Finns look an awful lot like the same squad that went on a wild tear at the Ford Worlds last April to qualify for these Games (yes, that was them too).

Peja Lindholm, seeking the only championship title he hasn't won, is crushed by GB and sits in eighth place.

And Italy wins again, to explosions of screaming and chanting. Bravo, prego.

And ciao, until tomorrow.
