Scotland Miss Out On Place at World Wheelchair Champs

Posted on Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 9:59am

Scotland missed out on a place at the 2016 World Wheelchair Curling Championships after a  9-4 defeat at the hands of Sweden in the A2 v B3 Finals of the World Wheelchair B-Curling Championship in Finland.

Scotland had won all but one of their games in the round robin this week and were joint top of Group A alongside Korea however with their one loss to Korea it meant they were to play in the A2 v B3 game against Sweden. Sweden went on to be defeated by Norway in the semi finals and Korea defeated Czech Republic meaning Norway and Korea have taken the two qualifying spots available at this event and will compete at the World Wheelchair Curling Championships in Switzerland in 2016.

They will contest the final this afternoon, see latest scores and results here World Wheelchair B-Curling Championship
