Curling: the qualified men, not women

Curling: the qualified men, not women

"Even us on the coach's bench, it's easy for us, we're on the periphery, to look inwards and examine every little micro expression and every interaction, but unless we've been out there or been in that situation, I truthfully think it's hard for us to pass judgment", said Kingsbury.

The Canadians' demise was inspired by one of their own, the current GB women's coach Glenn Howard, whose reputation as a quadruple world champion for his nation has not spared him from criticism.

"We've gone through some tough experiences together, not just here but over the years, and to be able to grind through all that and come out the other side feels good".

"For the record, they may have showed that clip after the game but I did not miss the end".

South Korea, Sweden, Britain and Japan advanced to the playoffs.

Rachel Homan's Canadian curling rink bounced back from their playoff elimination earlier in the day with a comeback win over the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation to end their tournament.

Kyle Smith's men knew a win would be enough to send them straight through to the last four but a poor display saw them submit to a 10-4 defeat after just eight ends, and they now face a play-off in a bid to reach the semi-finals.

"We're close", Miskew said.

The Canadian women winning out Wednesday would pull the Brits down to four losses to force a tiebreaker.

"The last few games we've got better and better and that's important building into the play-offs".

"I'm a little disappointed, said Homan". "We know how to play to win our next two".

Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Joanne Courtney and lead Lisa Weagle couldn't possibly have played better coming in. Miskew was outdrawn by counterpart Yhan Zou 95 per cent to 71.

Although Canada's win against Japan put them in a decent position in the ten-team round robin, Homan's team lost its next two matches against China and Great Britain before narrowly beating OAR in their final match. They did come back strong once, getting their first win over the United States.
