Results 18/3/2013: Eve Muirhead’s curling team still on track

The Scottish women’s curling team are looking good for a top four finish after two more wins in the World Curling Championships in Riga. Muirhead led her team, featuring Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton, to consecutive victories against the championship’s Asian sides to keep up the chase with Sweden and Russia.

Top British squash players Nick Matthew and James Willstrop are the highest seeds in the Canary Wharf Classic and the latter has gotten off to a good side against countryman Charles Sharpes. Daryl Selby also won his opening round with a close match against Simon Rosner, but the two Adrians – Waller and Grant – went out.
