Well You’re Home In Stockholm: Team Hasselborg

It’s been two years since the last appearance by Anna Hasselborg in Stockholm Ladies Curling Cup, but no Swedish elite team spends more time in Danderyd Curling Arena than they do as all four girls live in and around Stockholm.

This year is a bit special for the team as they were picked by Peja Lindholm, Swedish National Coach, to represent Sweden in the European Curling Championships in Champery. ECC is held in November, so SLCC will be a very good test to see the result of the preseason training.

The team’s history in SLCC is a long row of runner up positions (2007, 2011, 2012) and even if another 2nd place would be a very good effort in this year’s competition the aim set for the girls is to claim the win, of course. The 100,000 SEK first prize would be a very nice bonus for  the team in their work to become no 1 in Sweden too.

Actually, one of the team members, Karin Rudström, knows how it feels to win SLCC. In 2009 she skipped her team to victory, defeating Anna Sidorova of Russia in the final.

Welcome “home” to Danderyd Anna Hasselborg, Karin Rudström, Agnes Knochenhauer and Zandra Flyg, we are very happy to have you in our tournament again. Best of luck in SLCC and ECC!

Welcome Back To Stockholm: Team Sidorova

Anna Sidorova is a frequent participant at Stockholm Ladies Curling Cup and any other international championship since 2009. Her rink has varied somewhat from year to year and this time she will play alongside Ekaterina Galkina, Aleksandra Saitova and Margarita Fomina in Danderyd, trying to capture their second victory at SLCC.

Back in 2011 Anna and Ekaterina reached top position here, at that point skipped by Ljudmila Privivkova and also with Nkeiruka Ezekh, and the following year Sidorova skipped mother Russia to the European Championship Gold medal in Karlstad, Sweden.

Last season’s big happening, of course, was the home Winter Olympics in Sochi where the team managed only to gather 3 wins and 6 losses, ending outside the playoffs.

We are very happy to see you back in Stockholm again ladies. You know the way here, so a very big welcome to you!
