Minnesota is most proud of our Silver Medal winner: Ben Kristensen. As most of us know, Ben and his teammates earned a silver medal at the World Youth Team Championships this summer in Istanbul.
Not only is Ben achieving at such a high level in bridge - he is also doing a great job of promoting our game! This week, Ben and some of his mentors, Dianne Carr and Lee Steinmeir, also of Duluth, were highlighted in a Duluth News story about Ben and his bridge career. Of course, one of Ben's biggest cheerleaders, his dad Curt, was also featured.
Our state has a rich history of most talented young bridge players, including Howard Weinstein, Steve Garner, Joe Grue and others.
We look forward to following Ben's bridge career - which assuredly is already off to a roaring start!
