Day 6 of the Olympics and still not a sniff of a medal for Team GB – well it’s the taking part that matters, surely?
The men’s curling team put in a more convincing performance yesterday with a fairly straightforward victory over France, while the women were defeated by Sweden. Still, there are still definite possibilities of a medal in both, so one to watch. Halfpipe snowbarder Ben Kilner looked very promising in the quarter finals of his event, but sadly suffered a fall in the semi final to finish in 18th place. Though, at just 21, he’s got a couple more tries in him yet! Over in the medal tables, the USA have reclaimed the lead, with 5 golds, 3 silver and 6 bronze. We’re not quite there yet, but with the skeleton starting today, we’re hoping that Shelley Rudman can pull it out of the bag to claim our first.
