Olympics Curling

Muirhead feels Britain are gradually building momentum. She said: “It was a great team performance, it shows we have a lot of determination, a lot of patience and I’m really delighted to get the semi-final spot.

“As a team I think we played really well. Everyone is communicating great. Our coach Glenn has passed on a lot of his expertise and to have him in our corner and not in their corner is great.

“The last few games we’ve got better and better and that’s important.”

Britain women’s coach Glenn Howard said: “The last five ends of that game were by far the best five ends we’ve played this week. That’s what I want to see. The girls were out there to win it.”
