Anette Norberg's gold-medal winning Olympic team broke up recently, and now it appears the legendary Swedish skip has formed a new team and will embark on another run for gold at the 2014 Sochi Games.
Three members of her Olympic team announced their retirement, but according to The Curling News, 46-year-old Norberg has joined forces with Team Cissi Ostlund, who lost the 2010 Swedish finals to Team Norberg. The young Swedes also lost the bronze-medal game at this year's 2010 Ford World curling championship to hosts Canada, skipped by Jennifer Jones.
“I would like to help build a competitive Swedish team, and these girls are already well on the way,” said Norberg in a statement.
Norberg now joins forces with Ostlund, Sara Carlsson and Lotta Lennartson, the girlfriend of Swedish Olympic men's skip Niklas Edin. nna Domeij has left the squad and will reportedly take a break from high-performance competition.
“I am really looking forward playing with Anette,” Ostlund told The Curling News. “She's a great curler with a lot of excperience and I think that we will learn alot from her. The goal is to represent Sweden in the 2014 Olympics in Russia and I definitely think that this team has what it takes to be there."
The curlers have yet to decide on the positions for the team yet.
