The curler made his Olympic debut at the 2006 Turin games where Team GB missed out on a medal, finishing fourth behind the USA.

Women's curlers 'gave everything' they could

As Team GB's male curlers are playing their semi-final match, the women have been speaking about theirs.

The women lost 6-4 in their match against Canada earlier today, 19 February.

They will now play Switzerland for a bronze medal on Thursday.

Speaking after the match, Eve Muirhead said, despite the loss, they have no regrets about the way they played.

"I'm gutted and so are all the girls. I came into this tournament saying I wanted no regrets and we gave everything we could in that game. I'm proud of the girls and we've still got a chance of a medal. I don't want to come away without a medal around my neck. Our backs were against the wall but we gave it back to them and it was a high quality game. We've trained hard for this and we'll give the next match our all."
