China's curler banished on arrival home

6:10 am on 10 March 2010

China's men's curling captain has been sacked not only for a failed Winter Olympics campaign, but also and for wearing a US team cap on the plane home.

Wang Fengchun was held responsible for his team's sevens losses and only two wins in Vancouver, and instead of attending a celebration banquet on the team's return to Beijing, Wang was immediately despatched to the railway station for the 12-hour train journey home.
