Ben Kristensen's dad Curt (mentor, teacher, coach and cheerleader extraordinaire) emailed me early this morning with the news. Though Ben's team fought hard, led the Swedish team at certain stages and kept the match within reach, the Swedish youngsters were formidable opponents and ended victorious. Scores from each set and final totals can be viewed here.
We here in Minnesota - and across the USA - applaud Ben and his teammates for their great achievement! We look forward to more and more success from Ben at the bridge table - and are so happy that he and his team earned the silver!
