But their male colleagues, under skip Andreas Schwaller, were unlucky, losing their third place to Sweden, who defeated them 10-7.

The European competition is a vital step towards qualification for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Having failed to win a gold or silver, both teams will need to turn out a good performance at next year's World Championship in Lausanne, if they want to keep a chance of reaching the United States.
