Heartbreak for GB curlers


The fate of the GB curlers has been sealed. Following a tense match where a matter of millimetres decided the winners to be South Korea in a 5-4 win over GB.

It all then rested on the outcome of the match between Norway and Slovakia which took place this morning. As we cheered on Slovakia in a bid to give GB a chance at a medal, for some time it looked like they would conquer Norway, but an extra end was needed to decide the 6-6 draw and Norway emerged victorious.

This result put Norway into 4th place in the table and mean GB cannot finish higher than 5th position. It will be a disappointing blow for Team Neilson, who secured a bronze in Sochi 2014.
