The men's curling skip David Murdoch will finally pick up an Olympic medal after missing out on one at the last two Winter Games.
The curler made his Olympic debut at the 2006 Turin games where Team GB missed out on a medal, finishing fourth behind the USA.
He then went on to represent his country as skip at the 2010 Vancouver games where they placed fifth after losing their play-off match to Sweden.
On Friday, David will lead his team out at the Ice Cube Centre in Sochi where they will be hoping to beat their opponents Canada in the final.
Before going out to Sochi, David told the Express that he would love to take a medal back to his home town of Lockerbie, 25 years after the air disaster.
