England have won the World Mind Sports Games in Lille, retaining their title from four years ago in Beijing. After a slow start to the event, they were never very troubled once it reached the knockout stages and beat China, Sweden and France before defeating Russia by 69 IMPs in the final.
Congratulations to Heather Dhondy, Nevena Senior, Sally Brock, Nicola Smith, Susan Stockdale and Fiona Brown with captain Jeremy Dhondy and coach David Burn.
