Team GB Women Reaches Semi-finals as Sweden Men Prepares for the Final
The Winter Olympics Curling 2022 is coming to an end, with the games getting even tougher. Great Britain will be taking on Sweden in the Women’s Semi-Finals. In the Men’s competition, Sweden and Great Britain will also face-off in the finals as both teams fight for the gold medal.
Great Britain Women Makes The Semis
Team GB Women had all the luck they needed in their last encounter when they thrashed the Russian team 9-4 in their final group match. The win and help from Sweden defeating South Korea saw them secure a spot in the semi-finals. They will be facing second-place Sweden on Friday in an all-in battle for the finals.
The game will surely be interesting to watch as Eve Muirhead’s team will be giving their all to secure a win to advance to the finals. However, Sweden has been such a spectacular team in the competition, winning seven of their games and losing only two. They are surely the favourites for many, but the British luck might yet still reign again.
