Team GB Win Bronze In Winter Olympics Curling Event

Team GB Win Bronze In Winter Olympics Curling EventBritain’s women won curling bronze to ensure Team GB will equal their best-ever medal haul at a Winter Olympics.

Eve Muirhead secured a 6-5 victory over Switzerland with the last stone of the bronze medal play-off in Sochi.

GB’s men face Canada for gold at 13:30 GMT on Friday and their guaranteed medal makes GB’s haul of four their best at a Winter Games since 1924.

Lizzy Yarnold’s gold in the skeleton and the bronze for Jenny Jones in the snowboard slopestyle are the other British medallists at Sochi 2014.

“I knew she was going to make it,” said GB’s Sloan of Muirhead’s shot to win the medal.

“That’s all she said: ‘Give me a draw for the win.’ It was a great team effort. The girls swept it really well and judged it to perfection, and that shows how good a team effort it’s been.”

Adams said: “We knew if we were up with the hammer coming home, it would be good. If you leave Eve a draw to the four-foot, she’s normally pretty happy. We had it all under control.”

Muirhead added: “When you look at our successes over the last couple of years since we’ve come together, this was the one medal we were missing as a team and we’ve managed to get that.

“For us to finish the Olympic Games on a high makes it even more fun.”
