ritain is guaranteed to win his first Olympic Winter Games medal after the men’s curling team beat the United States in a hard-fought men’s curling semifinal.

Facing the only team Bruce Mouat’s side had lost to in the round-robin phase, USA also pushed them to the last stone, skipping John Shuster with a takedown attempt that gone wrong to finally give Team GB something to celebrate on the 13th day of action.

The 8-4 final scoreline didn’t tell the whole story of a tight last-four encounter between the reigning world champions and Olympic champions.

This guarantees at least a silver medal for Britain and ensures the 50-man team will endure a Winter Games without a medal for the first time since 1992.

Mouat, along with Grant Hardie, Hammy McMillan and Bobby Lammie will face Sweden in Saturday’s squad, a team they have already beaten in the group stage, in a game just days from Rhona Martin’s 20th birthday skipping the Grande Britain to gold in the women’s team event.
