Suzhou Social Sweep #4

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

The players have been arriving in Suzhou over the last couple of days and exploring what China has to offer, making everybody jealous whilst scrolling on their phones around the world. Here we take a look at the best (and there have been a few) social media posts in recent days...

Vicky Wright explored Shanghai before she headed 100km west to Suzhou with her Scotland teammates. Last week we saw United States' Sarah Anderson and her swing, now it's the turn of Vicky. Did you miss the bunker?

Wright's compatriot Bruce Mouat managed to get a look at the venue for the first leg of the Curling World Cup. Not too shabby, is it?

Suzhou is known for its gardens and they're listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Russia's Daniil Goriachev spent some time at the Humble Administrator's Garden which is almost 13 acres in size. It appears he found some time to explore the markets too...

What's a trip to a foreign country without checking out their public transport? United States' Greg Persinger might have wished he took a taxi rather than endure a ride on Suzhou's subway. Give us a smile, Greg!

In our 'Curler in the gym' this week we have Robin Ahlberg doing everyone's favourite exercise - the tricep dip machine. Feel the burn!

And because it is a special Suzhou Social Sweep edition, we have another 'Curler in the Gym', this time it's Sara McManus doing a spot of yoga. It appears the Swedish teams enjoy making everybody feel lazy.

Well, it wouldn't be a Curling World Cup without a piano being played at the opening ceremony. Did Mozart ever perform at a bonspiel?

Finally, Becca Hamilton got what we all wish for when we arrive at an airport - an upgrade. Enjoy the extra leg room on the way to Suzhou, Becca?
