On my way back from Chicago recently I chatted with the Swiss Women's Senior Curling team -- they advised me they were the second best team in the world, behind Canada.
They are currently third after 9 rounds of round robin play, ensuring at least a 4th place finish and a semi-final birth. They could finish 2nd or 3rd in opening round play, then they will play team USA in the semis. Despite my patriotism, none of the U.S. women has ever chatted with me in an airport, so I say go Switzerland!!!
