New pictures from the B-Division

Keep up with the action in the B-Division here.
Türkiye skip Ugurcan Karagoz: “This is our dream. This is our first experience of a top international tournament and it’s going well. This is the first step in our dream to have the men’s and women’s teams in the Olympics together.”
Sweden skip Oskar Eriksson: “Hopefully we can continue this run. We’re three and three now, with three more games in the round-robin. If we can keep winning, we’ve got a good chance. We’re making a few more shots here and there now, and taking away the big mistakes. It’s a learning process, as in every championships. Losing doesn’t help but we knew we hadn’t reached the level that we want to play at, so we’re not worried.”
