Suzhou Social Sweep #3

What's been going on in the world of social media this week?

With less than a week until the Curling World Cup commences in Suzhou, we take a look at how our teams are preparing for the first leg in the world of social media.

After winning bronze medals at the Winter Games in New Zealand last week United States' mixed doubles pair Sarah Anderson and Korey Dropkin took to the golf course in Queenstown. "FORE!"

Switzerland's Jenny Perret is putting in the hard work in the lead up to Suzhou at her local curling club. The Olympic silver medallist is partnering Martin Rios next week.

Mark Callan, director of Kays of Scotland Curling Stones, has been overseeing the ice in Suzhou. The houses are in place and even have special Curling World Cup branding.

And if you ever wondered how the ice looks so white...

In this week's edition of 'Curlers in the Gym' we have Sweden's Agnes Knochenhauer. They may stay cool on the ice, but they certainly work up a sweat on the weights. What do you bench, Agnes?

And finally, when Alex Bregman scored a homerun for Major League Baseball side Houston Astros in the week, his celebration took us by surprise! Will we see his compatriots in Team Ruohonen return the compliment with a 'bat swing' celebration in Suzhou?
