PostHeaderIcon Olympic Curling Update: Canada Slips Past Swiss; Sweden Advances

In women's curling semifinals, Sweden had little trouble getting by China as they got off to a 6-2 start early in the match and held on the win 9-4 with action halting after the 9th end.

The victory advances Sweden against Team Canada for a chance at a 2nd straight Gold Medal. China will now play the Swiss after they lost to Canada earlier.

Team Canada had some trouble against the Swiss but they were able to pull out a victory with a final score of 9-4. Canada grabbed a 6-4 lead going into the 10th and final end when Canada's Cheryl Bernard held off the Swiss to send the host team to the Gold Medal round.

Switzerland had a chance to tie with the last rock but the shot from Swiss skipper Mirjam Ott to move Bernard's stone flew out of the house to give Canada the win 6-5.
