Congratulations to USA 2 Women … it wasn’t easy!

USA 2 was like the little engine that could. They kept saying, “I think I can, I think I can” and by George they did it. They won the Venice Cup.

In the Semifinals they just beat out the Dutch ladies. Had a slightly antipercentage slam made towards the end of the match they would have been eliminated.

Going into the last few boards of the long final they were slightly behind but once again they pulled ahead and managed to win by 9.3 imps.

To win you need reasonable luck but you need to play solid and keep doing it. You need stamina and you need guts and they displayed both.

Congratulations to Hjordis Eythorsdottir, Jill Levin, Jill Meyers, Janice Seamon-Molson, Jenny Wolpert, Migry Zur-Campanile and NPC Sue Picus. The Netherlands defeated CHina to take the Bronze medal.

In the Seniors USA2 lost narrowly to Germany 172 to 161 with Poland defeating France for the Bronze medal.

The finals of the Bermuda Bowl turned out to be a cakewalk for Italy  They defeated the handpicked Monaco team 210 to 126. And in a heart-breaker for USA1 they missed out on third place when they just failed short of a comeback in the fourth and final segment losing 146.7 to 142.

Nevertheless special congratulations to Gavin Wolpert and Jenny Wolpert who will now have two new medals for the family trophy case.
