Great Britain’s women curlers will play for a Winter Olympic bronze medal on Saturday after a 10-5 semi-final loss to Sweden in Pyeongchang.

Victory would mean GB record their best medal haul by surpassing the four won at Sochi 2014 and Chamonix 1924.

Skip Eve Muirhead’s team will face the losers of the current semi-final between South Korea and Japan.

“We still have a medal to play for, so we’ll give it our all,” Muirhead, 27, told BBC Sport.

“We gave it our all and the Swedish girls were on fire. I missed a couple of key draws and you can’t afford to do that.

“We’re absolutely gutted. We have trained hard for last three or four years, but we were outplayed.”
