Anyone see the Italy vs. Denmark in the final Olympic qualifier for Women's yesterday? Italy lost 5-4 in an extra end with two burned rocks that cost them a point in the 7th end and gave Denmark 2 vs. 1 in the 8th end.
In the 7th the second for Italy was slowly one handed cleaning a rock short of the hog when she clearly tapped it in front of the Danish front end. she did not call the tap but admitted she barely touched it when questioned.
In the eighth they were throwing a take on the only Danish stone and the rock appeared to be on a path to nose it when right at the hog line a tick is heard and the stone deflected to a hit and roll out. Even the announcers saw it as well as the Danish team. Italy seemed to readily admit it, but said it was after the hog.
The infractions clearly cost Italy the game, but I found it interesting the second did not declare either touch.
Touch one is at around 1:40:35
Touch 2 at around 1:54:58
