GB WHEELCHAIR CURLERS WONT DWELL ON TODAY’S RESULTS
Paralympic debutant Hugh Nibloe has said his team will not waste time reflecting on what might have been today after the GB quartet narrowly lost out 5-6 to Slovakia before losing their second game, 8-2 to the Neutral Paralympic Athletes in PyeongChang.
“We’ll go back and hopefully tomorrow we’ll be raring to go again. I don’t want to be sat dwelling on things, so it’s good that we’ll be back here in no time to put things right.”
His team mate, Bobby McPherson is equally determined that after double wins yesterday against Sweden and reigning champions Canada, the team will return to that winning form tomorrow.
“It’s a blip, we showed how we could play in both games yesterday and I’m confident we can be back.
“It was a bad day at the office, we just weren’t executing as well as we know we can but hopefully we’ll get back to firing the way we have done so far.
“We just need to pick ourselves up, get a good night’s sleep and get on with it – we know we can play a lot better and we’ve got a chance to quickly turn things around.”
The British rink will take on Germany and the USA tomorrow on day five of the round robin competition hosted at the Gangeung Curling Centre.
