Thursday 22 August – With Japan, Korea and New Zealand already confirmed as the three playoff qualifiers at the Audi quattro Winter Games Men’s curling, today's last two rounds would only decide the rankings. There was plenty still to play for though, as the top qualifier would go directly to the final.

The three top teams had comfortable wins in this morning’s ninth round – Korea beat New Zealand “A” 8-2, New Zealand had the better of China 9-3, and Japan had an 8-3 win over Australia.

Team China

Wednesday 21 August – With two rounds of the Men's double round robin still to play at the Audi quattro Winter Games Curling, the three playoff spots have already been determined.

The three nations in the field who will participate in December's 8 team Olympic Qualifying event – Japan, Korea and New Zealand – all have 6 wins and will fill the top three places regardless of future results. The last two rounds will determine the top ranking and a direct path to the final, while the other two will play a single semi-final.

Team Japan

Tuesday 20 August – The New Zealand Men went unbeaten through the first half of the double round robin at the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ today, but their perfect record ended against Japan in the next match.

Previously undefeated Korea and New Zealand clashed in the feature match of the fifth round at Naseby’s MCI rink this morning. The sides were tied after the regulation ten ends, but the home side scored the vital point in an extra end to record a 5-4 victory in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd.

Monday 19 August – Last-gasp wins to New Zealand teams were a feature of the second day's competition at the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ curling tournament.

The New Zealand Men’s team started well in the feature match of the morning third round against fellow Olympic Qualifying contenders Japan. A draw for 4 in the second end and some impressive shot making saw NZ out to a 7-2 lead at the fifth end break.

However an error-free second half fightback by Japan, including steals in the last two ends, tied the game at 8-8 after the regulation 10 ends. In a nerve-racking finish, NZ skip Peter de Boer found just enough room with his last stone to secure the single he needed for the win.

Day 1

Sunday 18 August – New Zealand’s Winter Olympic curling contenders have had a winning start to the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ curling tournament.

The NZ men beat China 9-5 in their opening round clash at the Maniototo Curling International rink in Naseby today.

Kiwi skip Peter de Boer was pleased with their result. “It's nice to get off to a winning start,” he said after the match. “We played pretty well, so long may it continue. We only had one really sloppy end, and we had two or three ends where we got on top of them early and managed to finish those off nicely to score multiples."
