England Women end successful 2013 at World Mind Games

England's Women have brought 2013 to a close with good performances at the World Mind Games in Beijing.

They continued their run of success with a silver medal in the teams event. The team of Nevena Senior & Heather Dhondy, Fiona Brown & Susan Stockdale, and Sinéad Bird & Sarah O'Connor was narrowly beaten in a close final against China, having earlier won the round-robin part of the event.

Nevena and Heather then added to their extensive medal collections finishing second in the pairs competition.

In the individual event Nevena finished fifth and Sinéad moved through the field well on the final day to finish in ninth.

The photograph shows them receiving their medals from the team event - Fiona is not pictured.

As part of the event there was a visit by WBF ambassadors to a school in Beijing to play bridge with the students. Sinéad and Sarah represented the England team and, judging from the autographs they signed, they were popular visitors. A link to the video is below.
