The Associated Press SOCHI (AP)—Switzerland and Britain advanced to the semifinals in women’s Olympic curling Monday, and Canada became the first women’s team to complete the round-robin matches without a loss.
The Swiss beat China 10-6 to qualify in third place behind Canada and Sweden, who reached the playoffs Sunday. Britain lost 8-7 to Denmark in an extra end, but a 9-6 win over Russia earlier Monday helped the world champions claim the other semifinal berth.
It was a bittersweet night for the British—the loss to Denmark means they will have to beat Canada to reach the gold-medal match.
Sweden will take on Switzerland in the other semifinal.
