Muirhead mistake proves crucial as Great Britain miss out on curling final

Eve Muirhead suffered semi-final disappointment in the women's Winter Olympics curling tournament

Muirhead, who led her team to a bronze medal in Sochi, will now be aiming to repeat the feat on Saturday.

"I thought we'd nearly got away with it and then he plays a pistol shot and walks away with a five".

"We gave it our all and the Swedish girls were on fire". We missed four or five shots in a row and you can not afford to do that at this level. "We went through a semi-final loss and we came back strong to get the bronze medal", said Muirhead.

Kyle Smith will learn the lessons of his Olympic curling disappointment and come back stronger in four years' time.

Muirhead knows what it is like to lose an Olympic semi-final but she also knows what it is like to win the bronze
medal match that follows.

But Smith should take inspiration from fellow Scot Eve Muirhead, who was just 19 when she made her debut at the Olympics in Vancouver, finishing seventh. From four years ago we learned a lot so we're going to come out very strong and hopefully play well for that bronze.

There were tears after their semi-final loss four years ago in Sochi - Muirhead still calls it the toughest moment of her career - but they turned it around to win bronze less than 24 hours later.

Great Britain had to settle for a single in the third end to get on the scoreboard, but they were level by the end of the fifth as Muirhead produced an excellent last stone to score two.

There was small controversy in the second end when Britain's Anna Sloan slightly slowed the path of a ricocheting stone on her turn, although Sweden were sporting to settle for shifting the stone a few inches further from the house.

If Korea is falling in love with the roaring game, over in Canada, a national inquest has begun after their men's team lost their bronze medal game to Switzerland yesterday.

NBC will provide a live stream of the women's curling bronze medal match in real time via their website, NBCOlympics.com, as well as the NBC Sports App for those who wish to watch online.

Muirhead is the team captain and has been the leader of Great Britain's women curling team for three Olympic Games now.

"Canada is not walking in here and wiping the floor with anyone, that's just the way it is".

"The game of curling is in great shape right now because of the parity across the world and to me, that makes it exciting".
