Curling team lose to Denmark

Eve Muirhead

Britain's women curling team lost 9-8 to Denmark, meaning it's pretty unlikely they'll get into the semi-finals.

The only way they can get into the semis now is if they beat table-topping Canada in their final game, and then wait for the other results.

The team have lost their last four matches and their captain, Eve Muirhead, said she was "gutted".

After the game, she took the blame for the team's loss.

She said: "I'm pretty gutted after that. I had a few missed shots which cost us - a few shots we didn't need to lose."

Team-mate Jackie Lockhart added: "We win as a team and lose as a team. It's gut wrenching at the minute but that's curling for you."

Another gold for Canada

The British ice dancing team Sinead and John Kerr, who are brother and sister, came eighth in the competition combination after getting their best score of the season.
