The Swiss women's Curling team have successfully defended their second place in the rankings on the 4th day of the European Curling championships. However, the men's team face stiff competition in their bid to secure a place in the semi finals

Switzerland beat France 10-3 in their fifth match of the competition, and are currently in joint second place with Norway, behind Sweden.

While the women's team are close to securing their place in the semi finals, the Swiss men's team are having a harder time at the competition in Germany.

The team from Biel lost 3-8 to Denmark on Tuesday. They need to win two of their next three matches in order to secure their place in semi finals. They are up against Sweden, Luxembourg and Scotland.

However, they won their match against Germany 7-5. The men's team is now in third position with four points alongside Sweden. They are trailing Finland and Denmark.

Eighteen teams are taking part in the European Championship until Sunday, and only the top seven will take part in next year's World Championships in Switzerland.
