Great Britain women lose curling semi finals to Sweden

Great Britain women lose curling semi finals to Sweden”

They were beaten by a close 6-4 margin in the semi finals against Canada at the last Olympics but it was a different story in PyeongChang as Sweden, who beat Muirhead's team for world bronze in 2017, took total control. GB lost at this stage at Sochi but went on to win their bronze medal match and will be hoping for a return to the glory days of Salt Lake City and Rhona Martin's gold medal winners.

Muirhead put some pressure on the Swedes in end eight as two points after her final stone reduced the arrears to 8-5. "As a team I thought we had a good opportunity but unfortunately we were on the back foot from the start".

While the seventh end may have come down to matter of inches, Muirhead's team were always struggling to assert themselves after falling two down in the second end, and seldom looked like booking a place in their first Olympic final.

A rare mistake from Hasselborg gave Muirhead the chance to level the scores, but she set up a big target for the Sweden skip, who obliged with the double take-out.

And about to get under way in around an hour is the men's bronze medal curling match between Switzerland and Canada - more on that in a moment.

"It came down to a couple of shots in the seventh end", added Howard.

"These girls give their heart and soul in every game they play".
