Team Lëtzebuerg 2 won this year’s 4Nations cup. Alex Benoy, Volker Beba, Maja Gildhoff and Claude Schweitzer beat the Olivier Barrillot, Jean-Marc Lair, Pierre Jurion and Benoît Bucchiotty from Charleville-Mézières (France) to win the gold in the latest edition of this traditional event.
Five teams participated this year: Team Charleville-Mézières from France, Team Erfurt from Germany, and Take-Out Tigers from Zemst, Belgium, and two teams from Curling Club Luxembourg.
The five teams played a round-robin tournament, with the following results:
Making a glorious return after a year of pandemic hiatus, Curling Luxembourg again hosted the traditional 4 Nations Cup event. After a two-day feast of curling, the trophy went into the hands of Team Andorra.
Valentin Ortiz, Cesar Mialdea, Enric Morral, Josep Garcia and coach José Sanguesa took the final game 7-4 over the second Luxembourg team (Dan Kelly, Claude Schweitzer, Alex Benoy and Candice Richards).
The 2021 edition of 4 Nations Cup saw the participation of teams from Andorra, Belgium (Zemst), Germany (Erfurt) and two Luxembourg teams.
The event once again proved that curling spirit forges strong bonds between clubs in the region and beyond and organisers are already looking forward to next year’s event.
Dan Kelly, Karen Wauters and Jimmy Stryhn won the 2021/22 Coupe de Luxembourg. Three teams participated in the tournament that provided plenty of curling fun and some high-level curling.
This was especially true of the final game where Team Kelly faced Team Schweitzer (Claude Schweitzer, Barry Foulds, Volker Beba). At the end of the regular game both teams were tied 4-4 after six ends, and a two-player last stone draw was played to decide the winner.
In the end, team Kelly were the more precise team, with the cumulative distance of both stones from the centre being less than 20 centimeters.
Third place went to Team Benoy (Alex Benoy, Phillipe Giltaire, Matt Goerens).
