- GB beat Sweden 12-11 in extra end to set up final with Japan
- Men’s quartet also go for gold on Saturday against Sweden
These Beijing Games may yet have a golden finale for Britain. After a barren opening fortnight, where the questions become more pointed by the day, Team GB’s women curlers on Friday joined their male counterparts in an Olympic final after a wild and glorious 12-11 semi-final victory over Sweden, which was only secured after an extra end.
All four women were heroes, especially as they had to recover from going 4-0 down in the opening end. But Eve Muirhead’s remarkable final shot to score four in the ninth end, with Team GB 8-7 down, will live especially long in the memory.
