European Curling Championships 2023: Teams to watch

Men’s competition

As they aim for a hat-trick of titles in Aberdeen, defending champions Scotland, led by skipper Bruce Mouat and his team, will be relying on the strength of a home crowd.

The Scots, who are the current world champions and silver medalists at the Olympics, will undoubtedly be a formidable opponent when the competition commences, but there are many other competitors prepared to face them.

Italy, led by skip Joel Retornaz, is currently in scorching form after winning their third Grand Slam of Curling championship overall and their second this season.

With Milano Cortina 2026 rapidly approaching, the Italians’ triumph places them as the top-ranked team going into Aberdeen according to the World Curling rankings. As a result, international victories will be viewed as a component of the preparation.

Sweden, the Olympic champions, will also be involved.

Skip Niklas Edin of Sweden is back in the lead after missing the competition the previous year due to injury. The 38-year-old will be aiming for an incredible eighth European title.

2009 marked Edin’s debut victory on the European stage, and 2012 marked his second championship victory. The Swedes then had a firm hold on the Championship from 2014 to 2017, winning four straight titles before Scotland upset them.

Before Scotland’s pair of titles in 2021 and 2022, Sweden went on to win the championship back in 2019. The COVID-19 global pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 event.

Women’s competition

In an unexpected outcome, Madeleine Dupont of Denmark triumphed over Silvana Tirinzoni of Switzerland in the women’s event last year.

Denmark won its second-ever curling championship in Europe with this victory.

With Dupont sitting out the action after it was revealed that she was pregnant, the Danish team, which will attempt to defend their title, will appear significantly different. Instead, Mathilde Halse will assume responsibility for skip.

Not just Denmark will be sporting a new look in Aberdeen. This year, Isabella Wrana will lead Sweden, which has been represented by Anna Hasselborg for the past few years. To be eligible to wear the Swedish colors, Wrana defeated Hasselborg in a qualifier for the competition.

Threats to the Danes’ title defence will come from all sides; Rebecca Morrison of Scotland, Tirinzoni of Switzerland, and Stefania Constantini of Italy could all succeed.

Morrison, the bronze medallist from the previous year, will benefit from home support, Constantini’s Olympic gold medal experience in mixed doubles, and Tirinzoni’s three world titles.
