Thursday 13 February 2014
Great Britain's women's curling team got their qualification bid back on track at the Winter Olympics on Thursday morning with a 8-7 round-robin win over China at the Ice Cube Curling Center in Sochi.
Eve Muirhead's all-Scottish rink had suffered two defeats in their first three matches with their 9-6 loss to highly-rated Canada on Wednesday.
Two down after the first end against China, GB levelled immediately and forged ahead before they were pegged back 7-7 in the ninth, but Muirhead took advantage of the hammer in the final end to grab the game-winning point with her final stone.
