Hello and welcome to the final day

of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter

0:02:000:02:04

Olympic Games. We have seen history

makers, underdogs and bloody Dracula

0:02:040:02:10

's. We have seen celebrations,

upsets, heartbreak and joy and today

0:02:100:02:17

we will see four brand-new Winter

Olympics medals handled out. I still

0:02:170:02:21

have absolutely no idea what this is

supposed to be. Here is what coming

0:02:210:02:26

up. From the spring onion to the

Garlic Girls, tonight Corriere take

0:02:260:02:35

on Sweden in the women's curling

final.

0:02:350:02:41

final. The four-man bobsleigh

reaches its conclusion. We have the

0:02:440:02:46

gold medal match in the ice hockey

as the Olympic Athletes from Russia

0:02:460:02:50

take on the surprise finalists

Germany. He was the overnight

0:02:500:02:54

schedule and we try our best to

stick to it. Surely we have the

0:02:540:02:58

curling up with the hosts involved,

expected to be noisy. You can see

0:02:580:03:03

the third run of the four-man

bobsleigh from 1230. We will do our

0:03:030:03:10

best to join that after the curling.

At ten past four over here on BBC

0:03:100:03:16

One we have the gold medal match in

the men's ice hockey. In the past

0:03:160:03:22

two weeks so many of you have got in

touch with us and we've seen

0:03:220:03:27

pictures of your hats and pyjamas

and you have even named our trolley.

0:03:270:03:33

Our question today is what was your

moment of the game so far? For me it

0:03:330:03:38

was all about the USA 's Chloe Kim

getting gold in the halfpipe at 17

0:03:380:03:42

years old and doing it with

back-to-back 1080s. It doesn't have

0:03:420:03:47

to be about a medal hope or Team GB,

it can be anyone or anything, just

0:03:470:03:52

let us know. We kick off our show

today with curling and the gold

0:03:520:03:58

medal match is happening shortly

between Sweden and Korea. GB

0:03:580:04:03

qualified for the bronze medal match

against Japan and we have the story

0:04:030:04:06

now.

0:04:060:04:08

Even a team ready to go and they

have to be at the very best. It was

0:04:120:04:18

clear how tight this match would be

and sometimes the key is not to

0:04:180:04:22

score but to keep the last shot, the

hammer. The problem is that Eve

0:04:220:04:26

Muirhead 's stones were not always

following the strategy.

That is what

0:04:260:04:32

the Great Britain but not the start

that Eve Muirhead wanted.

At any got

0:04:320:04:39

more tense. This was nervously and

binary curling as the ones and zeros

0:04:390:04:45

and Japan kept the hammer in their

pocket.

If either team wants a medal

0:04:450:04:49

around their neck they will have to

step it up a little bit.

3-2 going

0:04:490:04:55

into and eight and everyone knew

this could be settled by mistakes,

0:04:550:04:59

however small.

We need to hit him

stick.

Stay, stay.

Japan finally

0:04:590:05:12

took one. 3-3 and Britain had the

hammer on the night. This match of

0:05:120:05:16

multi-tension was starting to

unravel.

0:05:160:05:22

unravel.

Eve Muirhead

0:05:220:05:22

multi-tension was starting to

unravel.

Eve Muirhead is trying to

0:05:220:05:23

catch this on the nose, her own red,

running back onto the yellow.

0:05:230:05:33

running back onto the yellow. No,

no, no. The only thing that has done

0:05:330:05:37

is give her the chance of a blank

tent.

It is done the job I cleared

0:05:370:05:40

everything out of the house, they

had to wait for that to come.

0:05:400:05:44

We have seen in the early end is

where we thought we were heading for

0:05:500:05:53

a blank end and a straightforward

removal of the stone, but she has

0:05:530:05:58

done well to get this right in, with

just a little bit of indecision

0:05:580:06:01

about what to do with this. One of

two things will happen here, either

0:06:010:06:06

Eve gets a blank or she ends up

sticking this red in the house to

0:06:060:06:10

end up with a one.

Even if you give

away the hammer -- the one here you

0:06:100:06:20

have the hammer in the last end and

that hammer is the key here. If you

0:06:200:06:24

can blank the sender would be great.

Oh!

O, even!

Japan had stolen a lead

0:06:240:06:34

going into the last end but the last

shot would be even but every

0:06:340:06:38

Japanese stone reduce the margins

they could work within. The stones

0:06:380:06:41

marked out a choice, taking one was

safer and it would force an extra

0:06:410:06:45

end but Japan would have the hammer

and the other option was to go the

0:06:450:06:49

two and risk everything. Even put it

all on red. Bronze bust.

She has to

0:06:490:06:54

put this right and it does not.

Oh,

my goodness.

That means the bronze

0:06:540:07:05

medal goes to Japan, their

first-ever meddling curling. Eve

0:07:050:07:10

Muirhead had the chance to win it

but it didn't come off and Great

0:07:100:07:13

Britain will go home empty-handed.

Cannot believe that after all of

0:07:130:07:19

this Eve Muirhead and her team have

nothing.

0:07:190:07:27

this Eve Muirhead and her team have

nothing.

Sony and so far for the GB

0:07:270:07:35

-- Sony and so far for the GB

curling team. Jenny Jones claims a

0:07:350:07:43

bobble hat is not called.

Oh, my

goodness, I love my bobble at!

Eight

0:07:430:07:49

has had main -- years and a lot of

attention on social media, mainly

0:07:490:07:57

negative in my part. Korea has been

one of the stories of the games,

0:07:570:08:01

what can we expect?

They have played

extremely well this week and they

0:08:010:08:05

are on a roll and I fully expect

they will come and give Sweden the

0:08:050:08:08

game of their life. Let us hope that

is what happens. They have been

0:08:080:08:12

riding on the crest of a rave --

wave with the crowd here and it has

0:08:120:08:18

been a wonderful championship to be

a part of but it will be a tough

0:08:180:08:21

game because Sweden is a very

experienced players.

Curling is a

0:08:210:08:26

game of etiquette, will the home

support BEA help or hindrance?

Will

0:08:260:08:31

be a support for everyone. The

unfortunate thing is they are not

0:08:310:08:35

curling crowds so they cheer at the

wrong time but they should be

0:08:350:08:38

cheering and lifting the whole arena

so I am looking forward to it and I

0:08:380:08:42

am sure the Swedish girls

0:08:420:08:50

am sure the Swedish girls will be

annoyed or upset if they hear any

0:08:500:08:52

cheering going the wrong way. They

will be focused on the game at hand.

0:08:520:08:55

In the round robin match when Korea

took on Sweden earlier in the games,

0:08:550:08:59

Korea one by one stone. Will you be

like that?

I hope so, there was

0:08:590:09:03

nothing nicer than winning a gold

medal on the last November last end

0:09:030:09:07

and it is really tense Soweto

because all the way.

Let us hope

0:09:070:09:10

indeed. Over to you.

0:09:100:09:14

The first stone is being played by

Sophia Mabergs. As Jackie was saying

0:09:200:09:26

I think this is going to be a great

match, or at least we hope it is. It

0:09:260:09:30

is filling up here in the arena. The

crowds have not been punctual, have

0:09:300:09:39

they? All through the curling they

have arrived a bit late. What

0:09:390:09:43

happens is they get held outside and

it takes for them to get in. We

0:09:430:09:47

expect this to be full. The Garlic

Girls, team Kim have been absolutely

0:09:470:09:53

sensational, taking on Sweden, the

victors over Great Britain. Anna

0:09:530:09:58

Hasselborg and her team have played

very well and perhaps been saving

0:09:580:10:01

their best curling for the latter

stages of this competition so have

0:10:010:10:07

they timed it right? Huge

disappointment for Swedish bands

0:10:070:10:11

when Nicholas Dean could not

overcome the USA, and inspired USA

0:10:110:10:19

team to win the gold medal. We have

everybody in the box today. Logan is

0:10:190:10:26

with Jackie and I. Yutu, let us

start with Logan because Logan is

0:10:260:10:35

zero from three on attempts of

working out who will win.

If you

0:10:350:10:38

include the Calcutta Cup I was zero

for four.

It is not ready fair to

0:10:380:10:45

ask you who will win but I am going

to. What do you reckon? Come on!

I

0:10:450:10:52

desperately want to see Sweden again

but I felt as though we had the

0:10:520:10:56

commentators curse yesterday for

poor Nicolas.

Korea for me, they

0:10:560:11:06

made the most shots all week and

Sweden might not be able to live

0:11:060:11:13

with it. They need to be very clever

with their stone position. They

0:11:130:11:18

could make some tactical mistakes.

That is a good point. We will see a

0:11:180:11:29

similar match to yesterday when the

pressure is on the team with the

0:11:290:11:32

most experience and the other team

has everything and nothing to lose.

0:11:320:11:41

We are all croaky, there have been

over 100 matches in the team

0:11:410:11:45

competition is not including the

mixed doubles so I might have to go

0:11:450:11:49

and recount. I had two goes at it, I

came up with 99 and then 100 but I

0:11:490:11:54

think this is the 101st actual match

in the when and -- men and women's

0:11:540:11:59

competition. We have commentated on

quite a lot of them. So you are I

0:11:590:12:04

excused a bit of a frog in the

throat.

Our throats are, even the

0:12:040:12:08

hot coffee is not helping this

morning.

She just missed take. There

0:12:080:12:16

is an early chance for Korea to

Korea to score two out of nothing

0:12:160:12:19

really.

Korea have the hammer in the

first end. Normally Sweden has it.

0:12:190:12:29

Anna Hasselborg likes to get her

team settle down with a steel. , a

0:12:290:12:34

blank ten to normally for Sweden in

the first end. The Koreans on more

0:12:340:12:38

than one occasion have managed to

sort of jump out to a three and a

0:12:380:12:44

four in the first end. They have

come out of the traps pretty

0:12:440:12:50

quickly. The crowd is filling up. A

lot of media attention.

0:12:500:13:01

lot of media attention. The skip has

become an overnight sensation and

0:13:010:13:07

the whole team are very well-known

and in particular she is getting a

0:13:070:13:10

lot of attention in this Korean

women's team. They are carrying the

0:13:100:13:14

hopes of the nation for a gold medal

on the last day. You are going to

0:13:140:13:23

hear an awful lot of cheers every

time a stone appears to most of the

0:13:230:13:29

crowd to work out in favour of

career. -- Korea. Maybe a chance to

0:13:290:13:35

salvage this a bit for Sweden.

0:13:350:13:46

Sara McManus. She is the daughter of

Stuart McManus the professional

0:13:460:13:59

footballer who moved to Sweden in

the later part of his Korea. He

0:13:590:14:06

played for Southampton back in the

1980s. I am sure he is a very proud

0:14:060:14:12

father. Sarah has played very well

this week.

0:14:120:14:21

Third stones for Korea.

0:14:240:14:35

One of two reflections, guy, on you

have had a night to look back on

0:14:360:14:40

that match against Japan. I was

chatting to a couple of people on

0:14:400:14:43

the way in this morning. A couple of

media people. The type of game that

0:14:430:14:49

it, it wasn't the most enthralling

match, was it, from your point of

0:14:490:14:57

view, from a curling aficionado's

point of view, was it a game that

0:14:570:15:01

could have broken out better,

earlier if you like from a Great

0:15:010:15:05

Britain perspective?

Yes, think the

girls could probably have maybe

0:15:050:15:09

tried to take the game on more, but

that easy for to us say because we

0:15:090:15:13

are up in the box and we are The Wiz

paramedics behind the glass, the

0:15:130:15:19

whole game just seemed a bit flat, I

was looking for somebody to, really

0:15:190:15:24

be enthrall and have a fist pump and

a great shot, you just lift the

0:15:240:15:28

team, but that kind of didn't happen

and it was almost too calm, and too,

0:15:280:15:34

too clean and, unfortunately it went

guest us at the end of the day.

Same

0:15:340:15:41

for me, it was nervy throughout, and

yes, it's not a great from a

0:15:410:15:46

broadcasting perspective, either, it

is not how we want to sell the

0:15:460:15:50

sport, having a low scoring game.

Yes, it is just one of them, really.

0:15:500:15:54

Disappointing.

I think we will see changes again,

0:15:540:16:00

the federation are looking at the

five rock rule, and for sure, I can

0:16:000:16:04

see coming in the games reducing to

eight ends, they are looking at

0:16:040:16:09

dynamic to make it more fast, and

entertaining, as well as the showing

0:16:090:16:15

off the skills of the player, out

there.

I think that is always the

0:16:150:16:21

issue for any federations who are

looking to modernise the game, if

0:16:210:16:26

you like, any sport it is, you have

got to somehow retain the integrity

0:16:260:16:31

of what the sport is about, not

completely change that, but finding

0:16:310:16:37

ways to, move it on to another

level, at least have different

0:16:370:16:40

versions of the game. I think, from

a, from a traditionalist point of

0:16:400:16:44

view when you are at the Olympic

Games you want to see the game

0:16:440:16:47

people have always played but little

changes here and there can often

0:16:470:16:52

make it a little bit more appealing.

I'm not saying it is not appealing.

0:16:520:16:57

We know how many peach are watching

curving. It is great so many of you

0:16:570:17:03

have been with us, if you were

watching the mixed doubles it has

0:17:030:17:08

been thee weeks of curling. I don't

know what you are going to do after

0:17:080:17:12

we have finished this last match.

0:17:120:17:23

Think that point about the game is,

in essence easy to follow for

0:17:300:17:35

somebody ho is not a, somebody who

is steeped in the sport and auj the

0:17:350:17:42

intricacies of it it. -- all. We

were talking about the strategies

0:17:420:17:48

and the rest of it. But it's...

Straightforward enough, that anyone

0:17:480:17:52

can come to it without knowing

anything about the sport and kind of

0:17:520:17:55

understand and get it. You don't

want to lose that side of it.

0:17:550:17:59

Very easy for people to pick up

fairly quickly.

0:17:590:18:11

I think one of the thing, the

difference in mixed doubles and the

0:18:130:18:19

normal, is that the right way to

call it, traditional team game is

0:18:190:18:23

the blanked end issue, I think that

is something they should maybe look

0:18:230:18:28

at I retaining the hammer with the

blank end. We had at least three in

0:18:280:18:34

the match yesterday, and again, you

don't want to change the way in

0:18:340:18:39

which games are played, in terms of

strategy, you want to maintain, but,

0:18:390:18:44

the mixed double, if you do blank

and or if an end is blanked you

0:18:440:18:51

don't keep the hammer. It forces the

scoring.

0:18:510:18:55

Yes, they are looking at lots and

lots of scenarios to change its and

0:18:550:18:59

to make it a bit more interesting.

Not that it isn't, because we have a

0:18:590:19:05

huge fan base out there that every

four years loves the curling and it

0:19:050:19:09

is on a lot, so people slowly but

surely get it, pulled into this

0:19:090:19:15

game.

0:19:150:19:25

There are a lot of Korean flags

being waved, quite a few handed out

0:19:260:19:31

outside. While we were chatting

away, it was a slow start but Korea

0:19:310:19:34

ended up with one there.

0:19:340:19:45

Let us talk about this Korean team.

They have been together, you talk

0:19:450:19:51

about the development of the game.

There was a ring built near where

0:19:510:19:55

they live, and got into curling

early.

0:19:550:20:03

early. Neefrn a long time this is

key, isn't it. You don't have to

0:20:030:20:07

have hundreds of thousands of

curlers to get a good team, iffy get

0:20:070:20:12

somebody who wants to dedicate their

time to it, which these four have

0:20:120:20:17

done, you manage to give them

access, facilities, coaching, and

0:20:170:20:24

understanding the nuances of the

game at this level as well, as we

0:20:240:20:28

have been talking about the amount

of coaches who have come out of

0:20:280:20:31

Canada and other countries and have

gone out there, and teaching

0:20:310:20:36

talented teams how to play at the

top level this is the result.

0:20:360:20:40

I think you have to look at the

depth of your sport as well, and

0:20:400:20:47

have future potential athletes

coming through, without putting all

0:20:470:20:51

your eggs in the one basket. Korea,

I believe, have the only women's

0:20:510:20:58

academy for curling.

0:20:580:21:05

academy for curling. His is the

result.

0:21:050:21:06

I think you have to look at the

depth of your sport as well, and

0:21:060:21:09

have future potential athletes

coming through, without putting all

0:21:090:21:11

your eggs in the one basket. Korea,

I believe, have the only women's

0:21:110:21:13

academy for curling.

They play a

nice way, their sweeping Ted Cruz

0:21:130:21:16

neec has been second to none. These

girls are putting a power of

0:21:160:21:18

sweeping in when they needtor, they

are holding lots of stones I thought

0:21:180:21:21

they might have lost, so it is

really impro sieve what they are

0:21:210:21:24

doing. -- impressive what they are

doing.

0:21:240:21:35

Where this team excels is their

technique and their ability to

0:21:350:21:40

maintain that technique under

pressure, they make so many shot,

0:21:400:21:47

they are better strategically, but

maybe don't make the same amount of

0:21:470:21:51

shots this team do.

0:21:510:22:01

So swede within the hammer then.

Mabergs with one corner out there.

0:22:070:22:23

Looking round for a bit of blue and

yellow. I can see about three down

0:22:290:22:35

to my right. I think, is that Anna

Hasselborg's parents, you guys have

0:22:350:22:43

pointed out before. Three or four of

her family members, not too many

0:22:430:22:47

other, a few at the back, maybe.

I'm a bit worried the organising

0:22:470:22:57

committee have priced people out of

attending today, it is not that full

0:22:570:23:00

in here.

Maybe 50 or 60% full at the

moment.

0:23:000:23:06

It does tend to fill up as we go on.

A bit of a family favour, not that

0:23:060:23:17

all the, all the... Kims are

related, team Kim, but there are the

0:23:170:23:24

coaching staff and the two twins

from the men's team and the mixed,

0:23:240:23:30

one of the mixed doubles team.

I agree. I think the problem with

0:23:300:23:38

when we got to the semifinals and

final, the tickets were premium

0:23:380:23:42

tickets. Of course, issue then is

for local fans, suddenly your team

0:23:420:23:49

gets to the final and it is not so

easy to get hold of a ticket and not

0:23:490:23:54

necessarily affordable either.

The national coach for Sweden there.

0:23:540:24:03

Himself a three time World Champion.

Tried his best to get an Olympic

0:24:030:24:10

medal, he didn't

0:24:100:24:18

medal, he didn't manage, so...

You

are going to get a lot of this, a

0:24:180:24:23

lot of oohs and ahs, a nice shot

there.

0:24:230:24:30

Both thaemss play that really nice

these team teams where they control

0:24:310:24:36

the stone down the ice, they take

plenty of ice and let it come in and

0:24:360:24:44

they are guaranteed their shooting

stone stays in the house, both teams

0:24:440:24:49

play that kind of weight really

well.

0:24:490:24:56

Kim Seon-yeong who is playing

second, a lot of the a media

0:24:560:25:01

attention has been on the skip, but,

Team Kim and the interaction between

0:25:010:25:08

the all four of them, it has been of

interest particularly I think the

0:25:080:25:17

fact that Kim Eun-jung is the skip,

the one that tends to shout the most

0:25:170:25:24

is Kim Seon-yeong. Peter Gallant. He

must be very very proud of this

0:25:240:25:32

Korean team.

0:25:320:25:41

Korean team.

Peter is the father one

of the players from Dan.

0:25:410:25:48

It was Brett who put him in touch

with this Korean team. That arranged

0:25:480:25:57

this partnership, which has borne so

much fruit here.

Was a really

0:25:570:26:04

defensive call there from Korea,

throwing the guard off, but plans

0:26:040:26:08

they didn't really see any option to

kind of push the button, and in end

0:26:080:26:12

and try and force Sweden to score

one.

0:26:120:26:24

We were talking, three of us last

night, weren't we, about the sort

0:26:470:26:52

of, as they match develops, see the

stats come up and who has been

0:26:520:26:57

playing well, although it has

followed if you look through the

0:26:570:27:00

week, the players who, the top end

of the statistic, percentage-wise,

0:27:000:27:08

Sweden were up there, we are seeing

the Korean women as well. The USA

0:27:080:27:14

side were nowhere near rating highly

in terms of percentage, either

0:27:140:27:19

individually or as team, yet that

won the gold medal.

Stabilities, I

0:27:190:27:23

think, you have to take them just as

a guide, sometimes, you can play 50%

0:27:230:27:29

but if you play that right 350% at

the right time it counts for you.

0:27:290:27:38

The right 50. It come downs to one

or two game, it is a new

0:27:380:27:42

competition.

John shus terse he made

the right shots at the right time.

0:27:420:27:47

Got the gold medal.

Just a little test as been put out

0:27:470:27:55

here by Korea.

0:27:550:28:00

Just that red stone that is out of

the house, just on the side there.

0:28:060:28:16

Is there. Give them, Sweden

something to work round, or with,

0:28:160:28:25

trying to make sure they get their

two.

0:28:250:28:33

McManus, removing that Korean

yellow. This is the skip.

0:28:330:28:39

Kim Eun-jung has had a great week,

her face is appearing everywhere in

0:28:390:28:44

all the newspaper, she looks so calm

all of the time. Always in control.

0:28:440:28:56

She did what she had to do that and

she is still lying to macro shots in

0:29:030:29:07

the house.

0:29:070:29:16

Now then, just having a look at the

angles here.

0:29:230:29:30

angles here. Anna Hasselborg likes

these kinds of shots, the Crosshouse

0:29:360:29:38

doubles.

0:29:380:29:47

doubles.

If she wants a chance of

blanking the end she needs to make

0:29:470:29:50

this one.

0:29:500:29:57

this one.

And am Hasselborg has led

this team remarkably well. That

0:29:570:30:02

could be a good shot. She has just

enough to tap that one out, not

0:30:020:30:07

quite. Not quite. A good attempt by

the Swedish skip but those two are

0:30:070:30:14

lined up there as well.

She finished

their well with it sitting just in

0:30:140:30:21

front of the yellow stone.

Although

she didn't make the double takeout

0:30:210:30:24

they have a chance to blanket

because her rear -- Korea I'm not

0:30:240:30:31

going to try anything heroic here.

0:30:310:30:36

A steady start of this women's final

and a steady start in terms of

0:30:450:30:49

people coming in, they are still

trickling in here.

0:30:490:30:57

trickling in here. Kim and John has

taken that read out. The crowd are

0:30:570:31:00

loving the fact that she has picked

it out. As Logan was saying there

0:31:000:31:07

was those dryly -- fairly

straightforward removal of this to

0:31:070:31:09

blank the end for Sweden and we will

move on into the third.

I think it

0:31:090:31:18

was pretty inevitable. And I had to

set up a good shot to have the

0:31:180:31:22

opportunity to blank when Korea it

looked very much like the end would

0:31:220:31:30

go this way when they peeled off the

corner guard.

We want this to be a

0:31:300:31:35

final between the two best teams

were played the best in the

0:31:350:31:39

competition so far and we want them

to produce a match to show-off their

0:31:390:31:42

skills and the fact they are at the

top of their game.

0:31:420:31:49

No mistake there from Anna

Hasselborg so blanking the end, keep

0:32:000:32:05

the hammer and move into the third.

Any signs early on which way this

0:32:050:32:18

could go?

No. I still think it is

nobody 's game at the moment.

0:32:180:32:31

Nobodies and anybody's. Am I on

celebrity watch today?

I think you

0:32:320:32:43

could be, yes, because Jackie

letters down terribly yesterday in

0:32:430:32:46

the bronze medal match. I have seen

my first curling stone at, which I

0:32:460:32:50

am really not sure about. Just

walking along there on the far side,

0:32:500:32:56

can you spot it?

Yes, very fetching.

You see a lot of those in Canada.

I

0:32:560:33:06

am also looking for one of those

curling conditions.

The curling

0:33:060:33:11

stone hat is not a good look. We are

continuing with the curling. Run

0:33:110:33:21

three of the bobsleigh, the four-man

bob, is starting on the Red Button

0:33:210:33:25

just about now if you are interested

in that. Two more runs to go in the

0:33:250:33:30

men's four-man bob.

0:33:300:33:36

men's four-man bob. If you are just

coming in from a night out, heavy

0:33:360:33:39

night, maybe you just want a nice

bit of easy watching and maybe you

0:33:390:33:48

have got a hot chocolate.

That

sounds nice.

Or hot chocolate and an

0:33:480:33:56

aspirin.

Something for my throat.

0:33:560:34:07

L C what Sweden do now. They blanked

the first end that they have the

0:34:090:34:13

hammer.

Well, to me it looks as

though they want to blank the third

0:34:130:34:19

end. That is a little bit

disappointing. I want to go out and

0:34:190:34:27

grab these teams playing in the

play-offs and tell them to try and

0:34:270:34:30

win the game rather than to try not

to lose it. Both teams did that last

0:34:300:34:37

night and it will be the same again

this morning.

The stakes are high

0:34:370:34:43

and it is understandable in one

respect but what I did not feel

0:34:430:34:51

yesterday certainly from a British

perspective was kind of trusting

0:34:510:34:55

yourself to make big shots. There is

a bit of fear and, of course, there

0:34:550:34:59

is bound to be but if you want to

win an Olympic medal and here if you

0:34:590:35:03

want to win the Olympic gold medal

it is an opportunity that might not

0:35:030:35:11

come round again for either of these

teams and the one thing you don't

0:35:110:35:16

want to do was walk off the ice at

the end of it thinking, I wish I had

0:35:160:35:20

done it differently.

0:35:200:35:25

done it differently.

The surprising

thing for me about the European

0:35:260:35:28

teams who are playing in the

semifinals is that they are the more

0:35:280:35:33

experienced and more confident teams

and yet they seem happy to allow the

0:35:330:35:38

opposition to play simple shots

where I would be much more inclined

0:35:380:35:41

to try and put them in a more

comfortable position to try and

0:35:410:35:45

force errors early.

Yes, we have

definitely seen in the circuit some

0:35:450:35:51

of these girls going out gung ho

right in the first end and if you

0:35:510:35:56

can pick up a three or two or

sometimes I have even seen for being

0:35:560:36:01

picked up because you'll just have

the guts to go up there and throw

0:36:010:36:04

everything at it. They both had

diners practice before the game

0:36:040:36:09

started, they should know the weight

and they should be able to take the

0:36:090:36:11

bull by the horns and start the game

and, Logan, you are right, just a

0:36:110:36:15

tiny bit cagey, but we understand

why.

0:36:150:36:25

why.

Just trading these stones and

everyone is trying to hit and

0:36:250:36:29

rolling behind that one guard that

out there.

0:36:290:36:35

At least the crowd are enjoying it.

Could have done little roll their

0:36:500:36:56

own got something started, hidden

behind a God would have been nice.

0:36:560:37:02

You are right, there are still

people rolling in gradually.

0:37:020:37:12

people rolling in gradually.

Maybe

they knew not much would happen in

0:37:120:37:15

the first two or three opens and

they would have another half an hour

0:37:150:37:18

in bed.

It is a Sunday morning,

isn't it?

The last day of the Winter

0:37:180:37:27

Olympics impugned Chang. It has been

a superb games. It is just a pity

0:37:270:37:32

for us at the curling that we didn't

manage to get a medal.

0:37:320:37:40

manage to get a medal. Sweden had

two chances at the gold but they had

0:37:400:37:42

to settle for silver in the men's

event. Another opportunity here.

0:37:420:37:47

Canada have been one of the big

stories of the curling, not making

0:37:470:37:50

either final and not winning a medal

at all in the team event, the mixed

0:37:500:37:57

doubles, they won gold. Don't forget

that. There was a lot of doom and

0:37:570:38:02

gloom around Canadian curling but

they did win the new gold medal in

0:38:020:38:05

the new event.

0:38:050:38:11

the new event.

I think that got

really good feedback, the mixed

0:38:110:38:14

doubles, sofa sure we are hopefully

going to see that continue.

Finally

0:38:140:38:20

we get one tucked in behind the

guard. We are getting closer

0:38:200:38:24

actually, they have been moving up

the house slightly with each stone

0:38:240:38:30

and from a Swedish perspective it

makes a decent target here. That

0:38:300:38:40

first one into the other yellow.

Nicely done.

0:38:400:38:51

Nicely done.

Sara McManus has been

very good at the shots.

You remember

0:38:510:38:57

my point little bit about the

British women, I think they would

0:38:570:39:00

admit that they did not play their

best. All week they had flashes of

0:39:000:39:03

it, we saw bits of it, every now and

again what they were capable of.

0:39:030:39:08

Remember how many of those sort of

shots we have just seen their where

0:39:080:39:11

they would get the top one is the

second one, Sarah McManus has been

0:39:110:39:15

very good.

She throws a lovely

stone.

0:39:150:39:19

The Koreans with the brush game has

been very good. They have two flags

0:39:290:39:40

on top of the brush.

I sometimes

don't see it because they sweep so

0:39:400:39:43

fast.

That is your deteriorating

eyes, I think!

0:39:430:39:58

I think if these four win the

gold-medal for Korea they will have

0:39:590:40:04

an exciting time ahead of them. As

we mentioned, the brushes, there

0:40:040:40:08

have been all sorts of pictures in

newspapers of them in various guises

0:40:080:40:16

and I suspect there will be a fair

few deals coming their way.

0:40:160:40:27

few deals coming their way.

Sweden

are waiting for the stone to cross

0:40:270:40:29

against the centre line before they

sweep it.

0:40:290:40:37

sweep it. It is a nice attempt but I

think Korea will probably see about

0:40:370:40:40

half of it. There is an angled shot

for us.

0:40:400:40:52

I love her man on the eyes. She is

calmly in charge and she does get

0:40:570:41:04

excited at times, we have seen it,

particularly in the match against

0:41:040:41:07

Japan in the semifinal which was a

real nerve jangling. She did hold

0:41:070:41:14

her nerve. It looked like they won

it comfortably with two or three

0:41:140:41:19

ends to go. I think they have the

hammer and there was a steal in the

0:41:190:41:22

Japan got two and tidied up and they

went the extra end. That demeanour

0:41:220:41:28

did not change.

0:41:280:41:40

She doesn't miss many, does she?

Does not miss many. They are coming

0:41:480:41:57

to have a look if there is an angle

there. I am not sure. Is there?

0:41:570:42:06

there. I am not sure. Is there?

I

don't think there is any need for

0:42:060:42:08

Sweden to play at take out. Both of

these stones or a nonthreatening

0:42:080:42:12

positions.

0:42:120:42:21

This is a difference between having

the last stone and not having the

0:42:220:42:24

last stone. If they didn't, there is

no doubt they will play at take out

0:42:240:42:29

or a freeze on the back stone to try

and get a save but with the last

0:42:290:42:32

stone neck and take more risk,

knowing they still have one to come.

0:42:320:42:44

Anna Hasselborg trying to emulate

Annette Norberg who won two

0:42:440:42:57

consecutive gold medals for women's

curling.

0:42:570:43:06

Annette is sitting and watching with

her sister.

0:43:070:43:15

That is a really nice draw there.

She should be fully right in behind

0:43:190:43:22

the guard.

0:43:220:43:31

the guard.

The thing about the

Swedish women as well when we have

0:43:310:43:34

seen them play against Great Britain

in the semifinal and before that as

0:43:340:43:38

well is that they come out and they

make their shots early on. We have

0:43:380:43:43

seen the tactic of blanking an early

end when they have the hammer and

0:43:430:43:49

making the shots. Both teams are

though, to be fair. Three of the

0:43:490:43:56

Swedish team are shooting at 100% at

this point. It is still early, and

0:43:560:44:01

then all of the Korean team are

shooting over 90%. Haven't had that

0:44:010:44:08

many difficult shots to play though,

that is what we have been saying.

0:44:080:44:17

So, Kim Eun-jung, the skip, trying

to get round this red guard again.

0:44:210:44:26

Wants to try and lie shot here, they

are going to have to sweep hard. I

0:44:260:44:32

don't think it is going to get

there.

0:44:320:44:35

She had the perfect line, she was

just a little short in weight, so

0:44:350:44:40

this should be a free opportunity

for Sweden to have a draw, anywhere

0:44:400:44:44

in the four foot. She needs to bite

the red circles.

0:44:440:44:51

So first chance of a two in this

gold medal match. Goes to Sweden.

0:44:510:44:58

So just coming up a little short

there, the Korean skip.

0:44:580:45:05

So just needs, Jackie was saying,

touch the forefoot. Clear ice, in

0:45:060:45:14

front of her.

0:45:140:45:22

Just a bit of a nervous twitch there

from hast, as though she was going

0:45:330:45:37

to go, then stopped and off she went

again. So a simple shot.

14 seconds

0:45:370:45:49

between the hog line should be about

right.

0:45:490:45:52

Left in control by the two sweepers.

Well you can't fault that shot. But

0:45:520:46:02

to be fair, if you have given these

nice easy opportunities to get your

0:46:020:46:05

two early on, it is going to make

you feel good, settle down. Sweden

0:46:050:46:11

then have the lead, after three, it

is Sweden 2, Korea one.

0:46:110:46:19

Still not quite full. It has been a

little quiet compared to the

0:46:190:46:23

excitement of the semifinal.

0:46:230:46:34

A little warm down there.

0:46:340:46:43

Just put, the caption of the medal

table up there, Sweden have one more

0:46:510:46:57

gold medal in these Winter Olympics

that Korea currently have.

0:46:570:47:02

I think I would have to have another

look at that. If Korea won the gold

0:47:020:47:09

they would go above swede none the

medal table. I am sure it is of no

0:47:090:47:16

consequence to the eight women down

there but they will be selfishly

0:47:160:47:20

thinking about themselves and

nothing else here!

0:47:200:47:29

So 2014 Olympic final the average

age was nearly 34-and-a-half. This

0:47:510:47:55

year it is under 26.

So that is good for sport. We are

0:47:550:48:06

getting new young Fleetwoods in --

athletes in.

One of the things it

0:48:060:48:13

shows is the level of dedication

really needed to play at the top

0:48:130:48:17

level these days, you can't really

have any other career or family or

0:48:170:48:22

anything like that, you need to be

full-time, you need to be on the ice

0:48:220:48:27

four or five hours a day n the gym,

four or five times a week. Doesn't

0:48:270:48:33

really leave time for anything else.

And on the road in the winter. It

0:48:330:48:37

all adds up.

To come back to the

point about the British women, you

0:48:370:48:42

know, it's a huge commitment as you

were saying, and if that British

0:48:420:48:49

women's team certainly are young

enough to come back plained again,

0:48:490:48:52

but, the other teams are young as

well, so they could be facing a lot

0:48:520:48:57

of these teams in four years if they

decide to keep going, as a team.

0:48:570:49:08

Two perfect shots again in this end.

0:49:100:49:17

So you get the impression it is

starting to warm up a little bit.

0:49:190:49:24

Korea will want to respond to the

two from Sweden. Just going to sit

0:49:240:49:33

off that little.

0:49:330:49:38

Knochenhauer is not going to be

happy if she was looking at the

0:49:520:49:58

screen I am looking at. She is

languishing, 71%. A couple of shots

0:49:580:50:04

in the first two ends. Didn't quite

work out...

Us but it is going to be

0:50:040:50:10

less than 71% now. Still early in

the game, it is hard to draw a lot

0:50:100:50:15

from the stat, she missed her first

stone of the match as well. So...

0:50:150:50:22

Got a zero for that one.

So... Korea, looking to try and get

0:50:220:50:31

something going here.

She has a great opportunity to catch

0:50:310:50:39

this yellow, tap it on to the red

and go across to the wing.

Kim

0:50:390:50:47

Seon-yeong.

0:50:470:50:52

That is a crowd pleaser.

She has

just rolled out though. A little bit

0:50:570:51:02

heavy in weight.

You were making the point, Jackie,

0:51:020:51:07

we are watching, if you are sitting

at the sides, that is a big gap that

0:51:070:51:12

she has come through, the two reds,

if you are sitting at side you can't

0:51:120:51:16

see the gap, we get the as and the

ahs as it slides by.

0:51:160:51:29

Well, all of a sudden, weir all

cleaned out again. That will make

0:51:460:51:52

Knochenhauer feel a little better.

She is creeping closer and closer to

0:51:520:51:56

making these shots now.

She had a mess and then a couple of

0:51:560:52:02

half shots but she's getting closer.

Her sudden, weir all cleaned out

0:52:020:52:08

again. That will make Knochenhauer

feel a little better.

She is

0:52:080:52:10

creeping closer and closer to making

these shots now.

0:52:100:52:12

She had a mess and then a couple of

half shots but she's getting closer.

0:52:120:52:15

Her team-mates will be saying "Will

you stop knocking our stones out".

0:52:150:52:17

It is a little unfortunate.

So Korea will come round this guard

0:52:170:52:20

again.

0:52:200:52:27

Crowd warming up. Getting into this

match now, and we said how slow they

0:52:440:52:49

were to come in, there's a few seats

still available.

0:52:490:53:02

So Sara McManus being asked to play

an in-turn tap here.

0:53:080:53:18

Clockwise rotation of the stone.

0:53:180:53:24

Unfortunately doesn't set herself.

They would have liked to have stay

0:53:330:53:36

in the house there. So another

opportunity for Korea to better the

0:53:360:53:42

first draw.

0:53:420:53:52

I don't know if we, we were talking

about the way Great Britain played

0:54:000:54:06

against Japan, and weren't wanting

to get too in stones in play and try

0:54:060:54:10

and force the issue a bit. Wondering

whether Sweden are thinking the same

0:54:100:54:14

thing against Korea.

Kept it all nice and clean and we

0:54:140:54:23

have seen some nice draw. Another

one there, a hit and roll to take

0:54:230:54:28

out, what we haven't seen is an end

where we have had plenty of stones

0:54:280:54:32

in play.

That would have been a feature for

0:54:320:54:38

every time I seem to look down as a

Korean match during the week, there

0:54:380:54:44

always seems to be lots of stones in

the house.

0:54:440:54:50

That was a good example of how

defensive the Swedes have being.

0:54:500:54:58

There is the two time champion from

2006, 2010. That was a good

0:54:580:55:03

situation, that shows the difference

between defensive and attacking

0:55:030:55:06

curling. They played the run back,

if they were playing attacking they

0:55:060:55:11

could have stolen the end, or just

forced Korea to score one, instead.

0:55:110:55:15

That was the point I was making.

Just don't really seem as though

0:55:150:55:19

they want to engage in that sort of

game.

Yes, agreed.

0:55:190:55:32

This is way short.

Now sure this has

the weight.

0:55:330:55:38

-- not sure this has the weight.

Well, it's paid off for Sweden.

0:55:380:55:50

Two centre guards there, hiding the

forefoots of Anna Hasselborg can

0:55:580:56:02

pull one in behind here.

0:56:020:56:08

Doesn't want to come too far back,

if she can just sit top of the tee,

0:56:080:56:17

anywhere in the four foot.

The ice makers have made a good job

0:56:170:56:23

of the ice, they are taking a lot of

ice to work with it. We saw it in

0:56:230:56:27

the middle of the week straighten up

a little. They gave them a bit of a

0:56:270:56:32

sanding, the stones and there was a

lot more movement in them. What can

0:56:320:56:36

than in a final, is there is nobody

else playing in the other seats and

0:56:360:56:43

the temperature can change and the

ice seems to straighten up be the

0:56:430:56:46

girls are taking a lot of ice, so

that is good to see.

A little heavy

0:56:460:56:50

there from Hasselborg.

0:56:500:56:57

It would be good if they could get

the crowd excited. They don't seem

0:57:050:57:12

as involved, and loud.

S? It was deafening when they

0:57:120:57:18

managed to defeat Japan yesterday.

I think obviously we are assuming a

0:57:180:57:22

lot of people may not have been to

too many curling matches before, the

0:57:220:57:27

crowd maybe not sure whether they

are supposed to cheer or not. I can

0:57:270:57:31

see lots of kind of hand made signs

which have just been politely held

0:57:310:57:36

on laps at the moment.

I am looking at one that says go

0:57:360:57:44

garlic girls.

There is a few of them.

0:57:440:57:52

So Kim Eun-jung, trying to cook

something up here.

0:57:530:58:01

You boys and your Joan, it is too

much for me.

0:58:010:58:04

-- jokes.

I would have liked that

tucked in a bit more, but right in,

0:58:040:58:12

almost into the button.

Anna Hasselborg has to be careful

0:58:120:58:21

she doesn't jam it back on to the

Korean yellow stone.

0:58:210:58:34

S

0:58:490:58:55

Anna Hasselborg Zen is ready to go

here.

0:59:040:59:11

Just looking to get the end side of

this,

and a little tap. It is a

0:59:360:59:43

lovely stone.

She did very well

though. She had the right ice in the

0:59:430:59:47

perfect weight.

0:59:470:59:50

Yes, she tapped it in right behind.

Not really possible for the Korea to

1:00:001:00:07

come down around the outside and tap

it so she now has to look at the run

1:00:071:00:12

back.

1:00:121:00:17

Well, to get to hear she would have

to be incredibly accurate from the

1:00:231:00:27

yellow to catch the red right on the

nose pretty much. It would jam

1:00:271:00:31

against the background but that

yellow you can see at the top of the

1:00:311:00:37

screen, she runs that back in and it

is straight and it might just sit

1:00:371:00:43

there.

This might just be the shot

of the crowds are looking for.

If

1:00:431:00:52

this comes through here, there will

be a huge cheer. It doesn't look far

1:00:521:00:56

from a shot but there is a fair bit

of ice between that yellow and that

1:00:561:00:59

red that is sitting on the button.

So Kim Eun-jung, the Koreans slid it

1:00:591:01:10

-- skip is trying to play a bit of a

crowd pleaser here but we will also

1:01:101:01:15

get two for her if it comes off.

It

looks high.

Nowhere near. That is a

1:01:151:01:23

steal for Sweden. A nice stone

played by Anna Hasselborg but there

1:01:231:01:28

was a lot of pressure on the Koreans

skip. Sweden will say that their

1:01:281:01:36

strategy is working so far. They

have picked up three and Korea have

1:01:361:01:40

just one from the first end and

Sweden or in control of this and

1:01:401:01:44

after four ends they lead by two.

1:01:441:01:50

A long way off with that one really,

wasn't she?

She was. As they were

1:02:031:02:07

smart they could have swept it in

and try to bring it in off the red

1:02:071:02:11

guard beside it.

1:02:111:02:21

guard beside it.

Just approaching

1am at home. If you are just coming

1:02:211:02:27

in, this is the gold-medal match

between Sweden and Korea, the Garlic

1:02:271:02:34

Girls of Korea. That is what they

have been dubbed because of the

1:02:341:02:37

region may come from. They all

played together since they were

1:02:371:02:40

young and this Swedish team, with

the exception of Sofia Mabergs, they

1:02:401:02:49

have all been together since their

junior days. Sofia Mabergs joined

1:02:491:02:53

later. Anna Hasselborg used to do a

bit of track and field in her

1:02:531:03:02

younger days, a bit of football as

well. A multitalented sportswoman.

1:03:021:03:13

No idea what eventually is, I am

thinking 100 hurdles.

1:03:211:03:30

thinking 100 hurdles. I do not know

why.

1:03:311:03:39

So, Sophia Mabergs here with an

intern guard, she just wants to land

1:04:061:04:11

on the centre line. All of these

girls have come through the Swedish

1:04:111:04:19

curling Academy. All of them with a

flat brush delivery as well. Very

1:04:191:04:23

common in Sweden. Normally you will

see a lot of curlers with the brush

1:04:231:04:29

tucked up behind their back, almost

as a stabiliser, but these girls all

1:04:291:04:35

slide with a flat brush delivery.

I'm glad you explain that. I thought

1:04:351:04:43

surely you would have to brush with

a flat brush.

You see the Korean

1:04:431:04:49

girl here has attacked up behind her

back and that is the traditional way

1:04:491:04:54

in which they are taught now. All of

these Swedish girls have a very low

1:04:541:05:04

delivery and they can get much

further and closer to the ice and

1:05:041:05:10

see the Stone a lot better with a

flat brush delivery.

Just sing a few

1:05:101:05:17

little errors from Korea at the

moment. The crowd applauded that one

1:05:171:05:21

but she caught the guard on the way

through.

1:05:211:05:30

through. Agnes Knochenhauer can see

all of this stone. Sweden are very

1:05:301:05:34

much with the upper hand at the

moment. Korea have the hammer in the

1:05:341:05:39

fifth and they really need to get

their two.

1:05:391:05:45

their two.

Just gaining that little

steal their from Korea just changes

1:05:481:05:52

the momentum of the team and the

players and I can almost see the

1:05:521:05:57

Swedish girls starting to lift

themselves, their communication,

1:05:571:06:00

they seem a little tighter now

together.

Well, this may please the

1:06:001:06:06

crowd. You might see some rocks

getting moved around here.

1:06:061:06:14

No. Can't even get that right. She

was trying to drive that one in to

1:06:231:06:28

the two Reds in

1:06:281:06:33

the house Kim Seon-yeong missing out

there.

1:06:391:06:48

there.

A chance here for Agnes

Knochenhauer to make up for the few

1:06:481:06:53

half shots she has been playing. Hit

this high garden come across and

1:06:531:06:57

take the yellow out as well and that

is a really good shot.

It is all

1:06:571:07:03

working for Sweden at the moment.

That shouting was coming from the

1:07:031:07:15

family of Anna Hasselborg. They are

just down to our right.

Agnes

1:07:151:07:24

Knochenhauer and Anna Hasselborg are

best friends and they are actually

1:07:241:07:28

share exactly the same birthday,

born in the same year and

1:07:281:07:32

everything.

Same day and year and

city, Stockholm.

1:07:321:07:45

We don't have to wonder what they

did after school. Straight to the

1:07:461:07:50

ice rink, I think, the pair of them.

1:07:501:07:56

Again Korea are not getting the

cover they were hoping for in the

1:08:071:08:11

yellow stone is sitting in the open

here.

1:08:111:08:19

here. Sara McManus will play a

controlled weight and she would like

1:08:191:08:23

to catch that stone and it will roll

onto the face of the red. It's

1:08:231:08:29

slightly over rolled but now there

is a pocket for Korea to come into.

1:08:291:08:42

Yes, it looks great for Sweden at

the moment but maybe they are a

1:08:421:08:46

little bit guilty of trying to put

too many stones in the house and

1:08:461:08:50

they have all grouped together

which, if Korea could just lay one

1:08:501:08:54

in that nice little nest of three

stones than it would be very hard

1:08:541:08:56

for Sweden to get anything out.

1:08:561:09:03

Kim Gyung-tae playing third. This is

an opportunity to give her skip

1:09:121:09:16

something to work with. -- Tim

Cahill I.

1:09:161:09:28

Cahill I. She overtook Tibet.

Yes,

there is an opportunity of catching

1:09:281:09:33

it slightly on the left-hand side in

two reds. I am sure that Anna will

1:09:331:09:37

not be too bothered if she reads

some of the Reds about because at

1:09:371:09:40

the moment they are a danger to.

1:09:401:09:51

She is going for the high road and,

my goodness, that is a great shot.

1:10:011:10:12

Sarah McManus has, I think, been one

of the players of the tournament.

1:10:121:10:17

The Koreans skip can certainly lay

claims to that as well.

1:10:171:10:24

claims to that as well. The skips

always get the attention but when

1:10:281:10:30

your third is playing as well as

Sweden have had, two of them working

1:10:301:10:35

well together. It is a great effect.

Can we not adapt Sara McManus and

1:10:351:10:45

take some credit for her?

Yes, she

has a Scottish background.

Her dad

1:10:451:10:52

is from Scotland but she said she is

100%

1:10:521:10:59

100% Swedish and she is certainly

doing them proud.

We just need to

1:10:591:11:04

pay her more money than!

That will

please the crowd, getting rid of

1:11:041:11:12

those two.

1:11:121:11:20

those two.

They took a little while

to consider what shot they would

1:11:201:11:24

play and whether they would hit the

other red and coming behind them,

1:11:241:11:27

just the way they were angled that

would have protected the red --

1:11:271:11:31

yellow behind it but that was

probably a sensible shot for them to

1:11:311:11:34

play, she doesn't want to get

herself into too much bother here.

1:11:341:11:42

Yes, it has been a tidy display from

Sweden up until this point.

A little

1:12:191:12:25

chance here for Kim Eun-jung to hit

unrolling behind the red.

1:12:251:12:36

unrolling behind the red.

She is

just trying to make it difficult to

1:12:401:12:43

Sweden at the moment. She can get a

little hit behind, the way Sweden

1:12:431:12:47

are playing at the moment, she would

just drive her own redback onto the

1:12:471:12:51

yellow stone behind it. It depends

where this one finishes.

Nice nails.

1:12:511:12:59

Goals. -- gold.

1:12:591:13:09

Again, applause from the crowd.

1:13:211:13:27

They won't mind if Korea end up

blanking this but they are trying to

1:13:361:13:39

make life really difficult for the

Koreans skip.

Well, you know that it

1:13:391:13:50

Sweden can force the one here and

get in at half-time one up with the

1:13:501:13:56

last stone having started the game

without the hammer, they can be

1:13:561:14:00

pretty happy with the work of the

first half.

If she can hit and stick

1:14:001:14:07

it it is not a bad shot. Korea would

then maybe try the double or she

1:14:071:14:14

would have to draw into the four

foot because hitting would not be of

1:14:141:14:17

benefit to her.

1:14:171:14:26

They are high, in the top half of

the rings.

She might catch this on

1:14:281:14:32

the inside here.

File sorry for the crowd. -- I feel.

1:14:321:14:43

They feel every stone, every yellow

stone that is pushed out of the

1:14:431:14:47

house.

I am surprised they chose to

roll in there, I thought a nose hit

1:14:471:14:54

would have been fine, if...

This

should have been easier double to

1:14:541:14:58

take, but of course, she may well

jam it, and that wouldn't be good

1:14:581:15:02

for Korea.

No, I think maybe, well, absolutely.

1:15:021:15:09

There's no real bad result here for

Sweden, even...

What I would be

1:15:091:15:15

concerned about, if Anna Hasselborg

was playing this shot, she would be

1:15:151:15:18

trying to blank the end and hit it

across the

1:15:181:15:26

That is exactly the result I thought

would come out of that one.

1:15:331:15:39

Well, it's been a great start for

Sweden in this gold medal match. The

1:15:391:15:44

crowd so hoping that Korea can lift

their game. And get an historic gold

1:15:441:15:50

medal here, but so far, it's been

the Swedes who have been very much

1:15:501:15:54

in control, so after five ends, they

lead by three. It is 4-1 to Sweden.

1:15:541:16:03

We know the drama can happen at any

time. While we wait for the sixth

1:16:051:16:08

end to take players let us get into

tweet, we have been asking you to

1:16:081:16:13

get in touch via our hash tash we

have asked what your moment of the

1:16:131:16:16

games has been. Loads have been in

touch. I will read out some. Graham

says Ily Christie, her outlook and

desire to carry on and win as epip

1:16:221:16:30

miced the perfect sports person.

Laura December and Dom Parsons

1:16:301:16:38

medals made me forget a slipped

disk. Nicky says Yarnold getting

1:16:381:16:44

gold and I lice Christie. Luke says

it has been like an extended holiday

1:16:441:16:48

with very little sleep. I now have a

Korean sleeping pattern. Dinner, is

1:16:481:16:55

in two hours' time. Bad new, dinner

for us is nine hours' time. So

1:16:551:16:59

serious work to be done. Andy says

3G B skeleton medals. The

1:16:591:17:06

celebration of the short track for

the Netherlands and seeing her

1:17:061:17:11

team-mates sharing the euphoria of

Olympic gold medal. Led ska winning

1:17:111:17:17

two golds in two different sports.

This is sent in by Dom Jones. It is

1:17:271:17:35

While we have been watching the

curling final we have seen run

1:17:351:17:39

number three of the men's four-man

bobsleigh. This is how British sleds

1:17:391:17:44

have got on.

Really don't know what is going on.

1:17:441:17:48

There was a mistakes straightaway

with the initial hit. The sled come

1:17:481:17:53

backwards. They are not going to

have great velocity. 57.8. Some have

1:17:531:18:02

gone 57.6. Lamben is the first one

out of the top 17, 18 sled who have

1:18:021:18:10

made that mistake. This is going to

cost him. That is why they have been

1:18:101:18:14

to far back. If he gets the rest of

the run tidy, he might move forward

1:18:141:18:20

to the Russian sled, but it is

braking into a skid. It is not

1:18:201:18:25

happening for them at this Olympic

Games.

1:18:251:18:35

I don't think he is going to improve

his position.

I think he will stay

1:18:351:18:39

17th. He couldn't get past the

Russian.

1:18:391:18:46

And more frustration for Deen at

what will surely be his final

1:18:461:18:50

Olympic Games.

1:18:501:19:01

That skid away from the push.

There

was a skid. We have no speed clock

1:19:021:19:09

but they usually carry velocity.

Brad made the same mistake. He got

1:19:091:19:14

through that, clean on the first run

but the second run it cost him, so,

1:19:141:19:18

a mistake there at the top of the

track. This is why the British are

1:19:181:19:21

so far back, is because they are

making mistakes at the top. Brad is

1:19:211:19:30

more inexperienced than Lamin, so it

is still not where this programme

1:19:301:19:33

should be at the moment. They are

both looking like they are going to

1:19:331:19:37

be struggling, to sort of make any

inroads into sort of, towards the

1:19:371:19:42

top 15.

Brad Hall might jump aPeter

Hedblom of Deen. He can't even do

1:19:421:19:49

that. Deen ahead oaf Hall by 200th

of a second. Deen in 17th place.

1:19:491:19:56

Brad Hall in 18 thd. They now have a

nervy few minutes ahead to confirm

1:19:561:20:04

their top 207 position.

So the Brits remain inchanged. Lamin

1:20:041:20:17

Deen's crew in 17th, Hall in 18th.

Let us head back to the Curling

1:20:171:20:22

Centre with Steve Cram, Jackie

Lockhart and Logan grey. Thank you

1:20:221:20:27

Radzi. The crowd trying to get

things going, to support the Korean

1:20:271:20:34

team, who are trailing by three to

Sweden who have had an excellent

1:20:341:20:38

start to this gold medal match, very

much in control.

1:20:381:20:41

You can see they have scored in the

last three ends. Haven't blanked the

1:20:411:20:49

second. Two skips there.

1:20:491:20:53

Sweden have managed to keep a

stranglehold on this game, it hasn't

1:21:011:21:06

been the most exciting but just

starting to force some errors from

1:21:061:21:08

Korea.

So they will say it is working.

I

1:21:081:21:18

don't think they have had to take a

lot of rest to do it. It is more,

1:21:181:21:23

Sweden have played their shot really

well, but they have been simple

1:21:231:21:25

shot, Korea have been guilty of

missing a couple of easy ones and it

1:21:251:21:31

has hoped the door for -- opened the

door for Sweden.

If you remember

1:21:311:21:38

early on, that, catching the guards

on the way in. I think Kim

1:21:381:21:47

Seon-yeong started to help set

things up, help swede none that

1:21:471:21:50

previous end.

Then the skip herself has not been

1:21:501:21:56

at her best so far today.

Every time. Sixth end, guards

1:21:561:22:02

drifting into the house.

It is those little errors that, as

1:22:021:22:14

the British women found out, you

know, they mount up, you keep

1:22:141:22:22

thinking, it's other, but they keep

happening.

1:22:221:22:26

It intad habit to get into -- it's a

bad habit to get into.

Where Korea

1:22:261:22:33

need to use the guards, they need to

get back in to this game. Sweden

1:22:331:22:38

will be more than happy to keep

putting ends in the books, getting

1:22:381:22:42

closer to the finish line.

1:22:421:22:52

It has gone very quiet in here.

1:22:541:23:02

I I think half the stadium is away

for a grilled sausage.

Are they

1:23:021:23:05

available?

They are. Bunless.

Hotdogs without buns. Beautiful.

1:23:051:23:10

Than axe.

Thanks. For bringing me one back.

1:23:101:23:17

Not. So Knochenhauer. Second for

Sweden, just going to get rid of

1:23:171:23:23

this guard.

Starting to make all their shots

1:23:231:23:30

look so easy, straight forward.

Sweden have settled into the rhythm

1:23:301:23:40

they normally like to play.

1:23:401:23:48

Korea can't really afford the keep

blanking ends at this stage, they

1:23:521:23:55

need to put more points on the

board. They will ignore these two

1:23:551:24:00

red stones for the time being. The

stone played by Sofia Mabergs with

1:24:001:24:06

her second shot, has stayed in quite

a useful position for Korea.

1:24:061:24:11

Come round that at some stage.

1:24:111:24:17

These girls are clinical when it

comes to clearing guards, and

1:24:451:24:51

throwing that presighs -- precise

precision weight, they aim for the

1:24:511:24:55

brush, it hits the brush and clips

out.

1:24:551:24:59

This maybe the last time they try

the corner guard. They will make a

1:25:151:25:19

move into the house, pretty soon.

There is only so young who can keep

1:25:191:25:25

trying to put these either centres

or corners on, depending on which

1:25:251:25:30

area of the end you're at.

1:25:301:25:35

At some point you have to come into

the house.

1:25:351:25:43

the house.

So Sara McManus for

Sweden. Removes that one.

1:25:471:25:51

Wonder whether, you know, they had

such a good round-robin, you win

1:25:511:25:57

eight match, their only defeat was

to Japan, by two shots and a lot of

1:25:571:26:01

their matches they go out in front

early, they kept control of the

1:26:011:26:06

game, and just wondering whether

they have even in these semifinal

1:26:061:26:09

against Japan, they were leading

that one, I think they got three in

1:26:091:26:12

the first, leading it all the way

through, got tight towards the end,

1:26:121:26:16

but just wonder how many times they

have been in this sort of situation

1:26:161:26:20

against a good team, three down,

half way point.

1:26:201:26:26

It is this position where you need

to think outside box and be quite

1:26:261:26:31

drey and spot every opportunity that

is available to them, so, they could

1:26:311:26:36

have just played, they are just

playing the draw straight round

1:26:361:26:39

here. Which is good.

It is a good call. It needs to be

1:26:391:26:43

made though.

Run to the back.

1:26:431:26:51

Pretty good shot. Good enough for

second.

It is important, a nice

1:26:521:26:57

second.

1:26:571:27:07

That had come out the other side. So

an opportunity for Sweden just to

1:27:091:27:14

check this out.

So taking a bit more ice so she must

1:27:141:27:22

be playing a controlled way.

1:27:221:27:30

So Sara McManus. Can't see much of

this.

1:27:351:27:47

But enough away another Korean stone

go, every time that happens there is

1:27:541:28:00

another collective sigh goes round

the crowd.

1:28:001:28:05

Yes, Sweden quite happy to take that

out of the house, the running stone

1:28:051:28:09

as well. Don't want anything for

Korea to use, to either jam against

1:28:091:28:17

or sit

1:28:171:28:22

or sit on, or... An opportunity here

to probably better the shot, the

1:28:251:28:28

first shot she tried.

Just finishing in the T-line would

1:28:281:28:38

be good but they are having to sweep

it to get some cover. That hasn't

1:28:381:28:45

finished as much as, can only see an

edge.

1:28:451:28:55

Are we going to see the run back

from Anna Hasselborg?

You are back

1:29:011:29:05

to the first stone in this end

again, just coming into the house,

1:29:051:29:10

the attempt of putting a guard up.

Somehow Korea need to start getting

1:29:101:29:14

some stones in play. They can change

things up because if they run back

1:29:141:29:22

and take this out they are

straightforward shots and they are

1:29:221:29:25

making very accurately. The Swedish

degree of difficulty is not very

1:29:251:29:30

high.

1:29:301:29:36

high. You can see how well Sweden

are playing.

1:29:361:29:42

are playing. So Anna Hasselborg is

trying to run this back onto the

1:29:431:29:49

yellow.

1:29:491:29:56

yellow. She gets it. She does not

stick that one but she manages to

1:29:561:30:01

get her shooter and it is just

biting at the top of the 12 foot so

1:30:011:30:06

they have two in and that please the

family. That was a quick shot of

1:30:061:30:09

them there.

1:30:091:30:16

A looks as though Kim Jong is going

to play the take out this time

1:30:231:30:27

instead of the draw. -- Kim

Eun-jung.

1:30:271:30:36

Kim Eun-jung, her performance so far

today has not been allowed to play

1:30:451:30:50

well but she has certainly missed

more than we have seen most of the

1:30:501:30:53

week.

1:30:531:30:58

week. Bound to be nervous with so

much media attention. The skip in

1:30:581:31:07

particular.

This needs to come

across the centre line she is hoping

1:31:071:31:11

to get a roll in and it doesn't look

as though it is going to.

That is

1:31:111:31:18

the issue for them, they just

haven't quite been able to get the

1:31:181:31:21

shots to move to where she wants

them to. A little high five and the

1:31:211:31:28

crowd were pleased but that was way

to flush.

1:31:281:31:37

to flush.

Quite a few misses wide as

well. It is a common error for the

1:31:371:31:41

Koreans skip today so she may be

need to take a little bit less ice,

1:31:411:31:48

but this is all a little bit too

easy for Sweden at the moment.

1:31:481:31:55

We have hardly seen any stones,

hardly any guards to come round,

1:32:031:32:09

straightforward hits and roles. And

then Korea make a little mistake and

1:32:091:32:15

picking up their shots and there is

a couple of steels.

1:32:151:32:24

a couple of steels.

And are choosing

to come down on the other hand this

1:32:261:32:29

time. She got the row across. That

one did not roll either.

1:32:291:32:37

Korea will have to hit this on the

nose and stick. Sweden are lying to

1:32:441:32:49

macro shots in there at the moment.

Dairies Niklas Edin, it looks as

1:32:491:32:57

though he hasn't quite got over

winning the silver medal, rather

1:32:571:33:01

than losing the gold. It is always a

difficult thing when you lose, you

1:33:011:33:06

are seen as losing when you are in a

final with two teams but one wins

1:33:061:33:11

and one loses but you still win the

silver medal. I am sure it doesn't

1:33:111:33:15

feel like that to him at the moment.

They have to work this one very

1:33:151:33:22

hard.

1:33:221:33:27

hard. She played just the right

weight.

Even that was sliding by or

1:33:271:33:34

it was in danger of, so the Korean

fans get something to cheer. They

1:33:341:33:39

got their one but Sweden are still

very much in control of this with

1:33:391:33:43

four ends to go and two up and they

have the hammer in the seventh. You

1:33:431:33:48

get the feeling that something needs

to happen, and probably not so much

1:33:481:33:53

for how Korea play, but Sweden, if

they keep playing like this, I'm

1:33:531:33:58

pretty sure they are just going to

control this through unless they

1:33:581:34:02

start making mistakes. It looks a

difficult one. There is the curling

1:34:021:34:06

hat. In the front of the stand

there. I am not sure.

No, I am not

1:34:061:34:13

going to get one of those, no.

I'm

sure that ladies very proud of her

1:34:131:34:20

curling hat but not for us.

Everything with Sweden at the

1:34:201:34:28

moment.

1:34:281:34:35

moment.

Big props to Niklas Edin for

being in here this morning to

1:34:351:34:38

support the women's team. They are

on their way at the moment of the

1:34:381:34:44

gold-medal. He looks like he had had

a bit of a sleepless night.

1:34:441:34:56

a bit of a sleepless night.

We're

all slipping up a little today.

1:34:581:35:00

We're not even on the ice.

1:35:001:35:06

Korea took that one into the house

there and I really thought they

1:35:171:35:21

needed to play short.

They have done

that a couple of times.

They are

1:35:211:35:26

playing right into the hands of

Sweden at the moment who will be

1:35:261:35:30

happy if there is something in the

house and they will hit everything.

1:35:301:35:42

She's going to try and put the

Centre guard on again.

1:35:441:35:52

It looks as though we are going to

get a guard this time and Korea

1:36:041:36:09

really need to get their stealing

boots on at the moment.

I have been

1:36:091:36:15

a little disappointed in the

atmosphere as well and that is

1:36:151:36:19

partly because Korea haven't got

anything going on the ice and there

1:36:191:36:22

is not too much for the crowd to

cheer about.

1:36:221:36:29

cheer about.

I think Sweden have

called a very similar game to what

1:36:321:36:37

GB did last night. I think this is

how GB hoped it would pan out and

1:36:371:36:41

they hope they would get some easy

misses from the opposition and it

1:36:411:36:44

didn't come last night but they have

today. I also think that Sweden have

1:36:441:36:49

played a much more accurate game.

You can play that game, but you have

1:36:491:36:55

got to make your shots very, very

accurate as well and they just kept

1:36:551:37:00

missing little things. How many

times did we hear, that's fine. Just

1:37:001:37:08

trying to keep each other

encouragement knowing deep down that

1:37:081:37:11

they were quite making their shots.

I am sure had they done then they

1:37:111:37:16

could have kept control of that

match, and even when they had their

1:37:161:37:23

noses in front it looks pretty good

until the last couple of ends.

1:37:231:37:32

Credit to Korea here. I don't know

if she should have put a corner on

1:37:451:37:48

there, she should Apple to centre

on.

I think they are thinking that

1:37:481:37:54

if they put a centre on it was a

good chance for a double takeout for

1:37:541:37:57

Sweden so will be difficult for them

to steal with the guards where are

1:37:571:38:01

now.

1:38:011:38:04

Agnes Knochenhauer. A

straightforward take out for her. It

1:38:191:38:27

is all easy business for Sweden.

1:38:271:38:36

She was just attempting to put that

back in place and she has made a

1:38:521:38:55

reasonable effort at it. She could

have been a little bit closer.

1:38:551:39:07

She hasn't changed her expression at

all, the Koreans skip, but she must

1:39:141:39:19

know that something has to go their

way pretty quickly here. We are into

1:39:191:39:22

the seventh end. Sweden have got

complete control of this match at

1:39:221:39:28

the moment. We have the hammer here.

There are two in the house.

1:39:281:39:39

Just a change up now. They are going

to try and draw in.

1:40:041:40:16

The skip coming to help. A good try

but it is still very visible, that

1:40:221:40:28

stone.

Yes, that didn't finish as

much as the girls I think thought it

1:40:281:40:36

was going to finish their so Sweden

will be able to see most of this and

1:40:361:40:40

they will be hoping to get hits on a

roll across to the other side.

1:40:401:40:50

roll across to the other side.

You

almost feel Sarah McManus could do

1:40:501:40:51

this with drive shot at the moment.

-- with her eyes shut at the moment.

1:40:511:41:02

That will just roll out. It is OK

though.

They won't be too worried by

1:41:021:41:08

that. They didn't want to sit and

stay where it was because it was

1:41:081:41:13

going to give a better opportunity

for Korea to come in and sit on it

1:41:131:41:20

so another opportunity to try and

better the first draw.

I think Korea

1:41:201:41:26

need to be a bit careful here

because there are a couple of

1:41:261:41:29

threads lying around and if they

keep playing this drawn they do not

1:41:291:41:32

make it they will lose three and

essentially the game. I think for me

1:41:321:41:36

if they really want to force the

issue they should put in a centre

1:41:361:41:40

guard like you said earlier.

She

needs better cover on the one foot

1:41:401:41:47

rather than here on the wing. The

Swedish girls are hitting so

1:41:471:41:51

perfectly. This is going to be

short. Capturing the guard.

1:41:511:42:01

short. Capturing the guard.

Nothing

is going right for Korea at the

1:42:011:42:02

moment. Kim Gyung-tae... Well, none

of the McBean at their best. They

1:42:021:42:11

started with some fairly

straightforward shots but the errors

1:42:111:42:14

have been creeping in and Sweden

have been on top of their game here.

1:42:141:42:18

They have been asked to do anything

spectacular. They didn't need to.

1:42:181:42:32

Another fairly easy shot here for

Sarah McManus. This time she will

1:42:331:42:37

want to stick in there.

1:42:371:42:40

Just a little role, not much.

The

players getting a little bit close

1:42:491:42:59

to the centre line burn-out Korea

are starting to panic and thinking,

1:42:591:43:02

OK, are not ready to finish this

just yet so we will get rid of some

1:43:021:43:11

red granite.

The crowd are trying to

lift the Korean team who can

1:43:111:43:15

probably sense that it is not going

their way. So Kim Eun-jung, with her

1:43:151:43:23

eyes on the target of those two

reds.

1:43:231:43:28

Can she move these two? The roar

builds at the stone comes down and

1:43:401:43:48

that will give them something to

cheer about. Improves the situation

1:43:481:43:52

slightly.

1:43:521:43:57

Sweden still have a great chance to

score here.

A great chance to score

1:44:031:44:09

for Sweden.

She is just going to draw across to

1:44:091:44:20

the other side of the house. She is

lying one at the moment.

1:44:201:44:25

If she can get this level on the

opposite side

1:44:251:44:41

of the rings... So staid's game and

Anna Hasselborg is drawing and

1:44:461:44:53

hitting equally, 94% on both of her

draws and take outs.

1:44:531:44:57

-- today's game.

1:44:571:45:04

Plays a shot and lets her sweepers

take control. Part of the role is to

1:45:161:45:25

manage the weight here. Sweep it if

it needs it, leave it if it doesn't.

1:45:251:45:32

Nicely placed.

She can...

Ever so slightly come

1:45:321:45:41

behind the T-line so Korea is going

to try and sit on top of that.

1:45:411:45:49

She needs to make a good shot at

some point. This would be an

1:45:491:45:54

opportune moment.

1:45:541:46:01

opportune moment.

The only failing

there was just drifting past the

1:46:011:46:05

T-line, so Korea will make a freeze,

they are pretty much putting the

1:46:051:46:08

game on the line here, if but if

they want to have any chance of

1:46:081:46:11

getting back in to this, they really

need to make this shot well.

1:46:111:46:19

If she getting this horribly wrong,

there is a chance of three for

1:46:191:46:23

Sweden.

-- gets. She wants to sit on top of

1:46:231:46:31

that red and lie shot. Look at that

accuracy s only 56% on draw shots

1:46:311:46:36

and she has been so good all week.

It is looking high at the moment. It

1:46:361:46:42

is going to cross a long way across

that line if she wants to get on top

1:46:421:46:46

of it.

Trying hard, it is just going

to miss.

The perfect weight.

Almost

1:46:461:46:53

no curl. It is doing nothing up

there at the moment.

1:46:531:47:00

A real opportunity now for Anna

Hasselborg to get this in the nose,

1:47:001:47:05

play a comfortable weight and pick

up a three here.

She could pretty

1:47:051:47:12

much grab the gold medal here, with

a good shot for swoopeden.

1:47:121:47:17

-- Sweden. If they got three they

would be five ahead.

1:47:171:47:23

With just three ends left. And we

have seen those sort of scores

1:47:231:47:28

overturned, but the way this match

is going, the way the two teams are

1:47:281:47:32

play, you can see there, hanging her

head. The lead and the second there.

1:47:321:47:40

Watching on.

As Hasselborg has the chance, a huge

1:47:401:47:49

opportunity here for the Swedish

skip.

1:47:491:47:51

And she knows it.

Just needs to come down here, with a

1:47:511:47:58

little bit of weight. Catch this

Korean yellow, pretty much on the

1:47:581:48:03

nose. Sit with the shooter.

Has she got it? Yes, she has.

1:48:031:48:15

Well, the sticks are raised, the

brushes go aloft, and Sweden know

1:48:151:48:20

that was a huge shot, and applauded

by the two time Olympic gold

1:48:201:48:26

medallist Annette norberg in the

stands, it is 7-2 in favour of

1:48:261:48:31

Sweden.

Seven ends played, just three left

1:48:311:48:36

to go. Korea will have the hammer in

the eighth and perhaps the tenth.

1:48:361:48:40

The crowd doing their best to get

behind their team, but they are not

1:48:401:48:47

playing well enough, I don't think

and also Sweden just have a grip on

1:48:471:48:52

this match that they have had for

almost since the second end and are

1:48:521:48:56

not letting go at all.

1:48:561:49:00

An Olympic gold medal would be great

redemption for Anna Hasselborg as

1:49:031:49:07

well. She...

She has lost so many

final, so, so many finals.

At the

1:49:071:49:14

European Championships in Glasgow,

she had a fairly routine final shot

1:49:141:49:19

to beat Republican, and miss --

Russia and missed it. And it was a

1:49:191:49:23

horrible scene, really.

That is the

one thing, they are a great team but

1:49:231:49:27

that is the one thing I would say

about them, they tend to, and it's a

1:49:271:49:32

terrible thing to say but they tend

to bottle it, when they came to that

1:49:321:49:36

final Championship when it was

close. She has been a long time

1:49:361:49:39

waiting for this to happen and they

have a huge lead and I don't for see

1:49:391:49:44

them giving this up at all.

There is

no way she is bottling it today.

She

1:49:441:49:50

is playing 98%.

What is it they say,

everything comes to he who waits?

1:49:501:49:58

All these terminologies but that is

what is happening here today.

1:49:581:50:04

Korea have frozen, on the other

hand. It is a bit too big an

1:50:041:50:08

occasion for them at this stage of

their career.

And they have that

1:50:081:50:16

level of expectation, the whole

nation watching, we have said there

1:50:161:50:20

was almost half of the nation

percentage wise watched their

1:50:201:50:26

semifinal against Japan, and so many

media here. They have never been in

1:50:261:50:31

that situation before. It is

something you can't plan for.

They

1:50:311:50:34

have nothing to be ashamed of. They

have had a tremendous week, they

1:50:341:50:38

have played extremely well.

Ta

They

have won nine out of listen games at

1:50:381:50:45

the Olympic Games.

Maybe just the

pressure of this final, is really

1:50:451:50:49

telling on the girls now.

Noo Sweden are starting to throw

1:50:491:50:56

stones away. They know that, they

don't want to give any help

1:50:561:51:00

whatsoever to the Koreans.

And this is one of the things about

1:51:001:51:06

curling as well, that you almost

feel like there, you should be able

1:51:061:51:10

to play your joke or something and

get double score, or...

Because when

1:51:101:51:14

you are so far up you start playing

this clinical game where you blast

1:51:141:51:19

everything you see.

I ambit

facetious, Sweden have earned their

1:51:191:51:24

position here, and they have every

right to just play this out.

1:51:241:51:30

Not give Korea any opportunities, we

still have three ends to go, and I

1:51:301:51:36

say only, they are five behind. Get

a two, a steal and a two. Don't look

1:51:361:51:40

at pep like that. I am trying to

keep people interested.

There is

1:51:401:51:45

every likelihood that Korea could

get a two here, because there is two

1:51:451:51:52

guards up and Anna can only take one

of them. But you have to play the

1:51:521:51:56

score board after that, and these

girls won't be at all worried by

1:51:561:52:01

losing that two because they get the

hammer straight back and they can

1:52:011:52:04

score.

1:52:041:52:11

Sofia Mabergs is having a perfect

game. You have to put her in

1:52:131:52:16

contention for the best league in

the world, in the women's game.

How

1:52:161:52:20

would that be if she finished this

Olympic final, winning a Olympic

1:52:201:52:25

gold medal on 100%?

She could

confidently say she contributed

1:52:251:52:28

well.

1:52:281:52:30

One of the great things about this

Korean team they don't give up.

1:52:531:52:58

Their demeanour doesn't change, it

doesn't matter whether they are

1:52:581:53:00

winning by five or losing by five,

they are still plugging away, still

1:53:001:53:04

trying to make things happen.

1:53:041:53:15

So Knochenhauer. Slightly shaky

start, certainly settled down to her

1:53:221:53:27

game.

1:53:271:53:32

Removing the guard.

And they will want that red out of

1:53:331:53:38

the way also. Away it goes.

Is Medal ceremony will be after this

1:53:381:53:49

match.

1:53:491:53:53

Bronze medallist Japan. I am sure

they are kicking round somewhere. I

1:53:531:53:58

haven't seen them in here yet. I am

sure they won't be too far away.

1:53:581:54:07

So this the opportunity for Korea to

use that corner guard they have got

1:54:151:54:19

and bring another yellow in.

I don't think this is going to have

1:54:191:54:23

the legs though.

They are sweeping really hard, if

1:54:231:54:28

they can get it biting it would be

good.

1:54:281:54:33

Good try but not quite enough.

Not

in the house but it's still there,

1:54:331:54:38

it's still a corner, so Anna is

going to remove the top one and then

1:54:381:54:42

hopefully Korea will use the yellow

they have got to come round behind

1:54:421:54:46

again.

1:54:461:54:56

The girls are very relaxed. That is

a nice position to be in.

1:55:231:55:36

It a pity that Korea haven't been

able to really get this crowd into

1:55:381:55:42

the match, they have tried their

best, both sides, I guess the crowd

1:55:421:55:46

and the players have tried to get

something going.

1:55:461:55:52

It is going to keep going.

That's been their game today. Not

1:55:521:55:57

getting the shots to work in the way

it has been all week.

1:55:571:56:04

And with every little mistake their

chances of pulling this back

1:56:041:56:08

disappear.

1:56:081:56:18

This game is almost going similar to

the men's game in the fact that one

1:56:231:56:28

team are well ahead, and the other,

and these girlfriends, their hearts

1:56:281:56:32

will be pumping at the moment but

they have to keep themselves calm

1:56:321:56:34

because they can see the end is

close.

Yes, and no stones kicking

1:56:341:56:42

round, that is also great for them.

What is nice about the currents

1:56:421:56:48

situation is they are so far ahead,

that they can only enjoy these last

1:56:481:56:52

moments of the game. When it goes

down to wire, you are almost in a

1:56:521:56:58

state of panic for the last few

stones, or last couple of events. I

1:56:581:57:02

think the elation is so different,

if it does come down to that last

1:57:021:57:06

sown of the last send end, it is so

tense, where you have, kind of

1:57:061:57:12

calmed down and as the enjoyment

just as good or is it muted? Another

1:57:121:57:19

good shot from Korea.

Nicely placing

it. Freezing it against the yellow

1:57:191:57:25

that was left out there.

1:57:251:57:35

So Anna Hasselborg goes through the

same routine every single time she

1:57:581:58:03

throws her stone.

Good cleaner isn't

she.

Does, cleaned her stone, her

1:58:031:58:10

shoe, stands up, sits down, she does

the

1:58:101:58:16

A pity for the crowd. Many of these

may have been watching curling live

1:58:501:58:56

for the first time. They would have

so much hope their team could win

1:58:561:59:03

the gold medal.

1:59:031:59:09

the gold medal. These women have

played eight wins in the round

1:59:091:59:13

robin, just the one loss.

1:59:131:59:23

The most important one is this one

for them.

I think it's a huge

1:59:231:59:29

accomplishment, not just for Korean

curling, but they're definitely

1:59:291:59:35

starting to close the gap on the

more traditional curling nations.

1:59:351:59:41

And the rest are catching up or even

passing Canada at the moment which

1:59:411:59:45

is really exciting for the world of

curling. What these Korean women are

1:59:451:59:50

doing is going to have a very long

lasting legacy here in Korea.

1:59:501:59:56

They're hoping they'll be able to

build on this and develop new

1:59:562:00:01

facilities. I think it's only going

to be good for Korean curling.

2:00:012:00:05

They've got a very bright future,

even this team themselves.

2:00:052:00:14

even this team themselves.

So Anna

Hasselborg with her last stone of

2:00:222:00:24

this end. Doing what she's done all

day long here is cleaning things up.

2:00:242:00:29

Leaves it there as a bit of a

tempter. She left home, her home

2:00:292:00:39

town at 16 to go and be part of the

academy as a youngster. Said they'd

2:00:392:00:47

won the world junior championships.

Muirhead was a prolific winner. Anna

2:00:472:01:00

Hasselborg won the world junior

title with two of her team-mates

2:01:002:01:05

from this team.

2:01:052:01:11

from this team. And now fulfilling

the ultimate goal of winning an

2:01:152:01:19

Olympic gold, we're pretty sure.

2:01:192:01:25

7-3. 2 to go. And if they were to

pull this back it would be one of

2:01:302:01:37

the greatest Olympic comebacks of

history.

2:01:372:01:46

It's a shame the crowd are just

getting into it now. We didn't hear

2:01:472:01:53

anything from them in the first

half. It's almost too late for the

2:01:532:01:58

home support.

They obviously are

realising the writing's on the wall

2:01:582:02:04

here. Doing their best to politely

raise the temperature a little bit.

2:02:042:02:11

But for Sweden they're just trying

to stay cool. Not get too

2:02:112:02:16

complacent. Not make any mistakes.

Any huge mistakes that could give

2:02:162:02:24

Korea even a little glimmer of hope.

Sweden have just been so much in

2:02:242:02:39

control. Even the first end when

Korea got their one. Picking up

2:02:392:02:43

shots. Being patient. Nothing

spectacular.

They will be wanting

2:02:432:02:51

this to come to an end, though. It's

hard when you're up and you're just

2:02:512:02:58

thinking you want it to finish.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

2:02:582:03:07

They have to focus. Here is a

difficult shot.

Mabergs was thinking

2:03:072:03:19

she will shoot 100% in the Olympics.

Maybe she will just make it.

That

2:03:192:03:26

looks wide.

It's very close.

She has

got it.

Keeping her 100% record as

2:03:262:03:34

far as I'm concerned.

Icing on the

cake, really. Just turned a little.

2:03:342:03:42

Has been very straight down there.

These four have played so well

2:03:422:03:56

together.

2:03:562:04:01

together. You wouldn't know if she

was winning, losing, having the

2:04:062:04:12

worst day of her life out here, Kim

EunJung. So trying to put together

2:04:122:04:21

one out there.

2:04:212:04:24

Another tech shot here from Mabergs.

2:04:452:04:56

She is going to manage this. They

won't mind it, it's in the house.

2:05:002:05:04

That's a great shot. Doesn't matter

it's in there. She's cleared up the

2:05:042:05:10

four foot. She's played wonderfully

well.

2:05:102:05:19

well.

Maintains her perfect record,

Mabergs.

2:05:252:05:28

They have to get this one across. Is

it going to beat? Yes. All of them

2:05:422:05:49

are sweeping that.

2:05:492:05:54

So a wonderful game of curling here

from the Swedish girls. Hopefully

2:06:032:06:09

we'll still get some curling fans

who are staying up watching tonight.

2:06:092:06:13

If you want to go and try this

sport, see if you can be as slick

2:06:132:06:19

and as graceful as these girls up

here in the Olympic finals, you

2:06:192:06:26

could go to www.trycurling.com. Put

your post code in. See where the

2:06:262:06:30

local ice rink is and give it a go.

All ages can play. If you fancy

2:06:302:06:37

trying any other sport you've

watched at the Winter Olympics, BBC

2:06:372:06:44

Get Inspired is another area to look

in. Pop in your post code and see

2:06:442:06:51

what activities are in your area.

Keeping yourself healthy is always a

2:06:512:06:55

good thing.

2:06:552:07:02

This is a bit like being 3-0 down

with five minutes left to play. Just

2:07:142:07:21

hoping something is going to happen.

It does happen in sport.

And in

2:07:212:07:31

curling we can get a scenario where

one stone changes things. We've

2:07:312:07:38

never had in this whole final is a

situation where we've got quite a

2:07:382:07:42

few stones in play, in the house,

where you're thinking, the sort of

2:07:422:07:48

thing that Eve Muirhead had

yesterday, you-a big shot to get to

2:07:482:07:52

or give up a -- you have a big shot

to get to or give up a 1. Nearly.

2:07:522:07:59

There's never been that cluster of

stones all stuck in the one foot or

2:07:592:08:03

the centre. It's been quite a very

clean game.

I think that's been a

2:08:032:08:09

deliberate ploy by Sweden. They're

playing to the crowd a little bit

2:08:092:08:17

now. They're relaxing. Every stone

that goes by, as I said earlier,

2:08:172:08:25

that gold medal ever closer.

That

was almost a bit of an exhibition

2:08:252:08:35

shot to finish there from Agnes.

Four more to come for Sweden. Korea

2:08:352:08:49

still trying as hard as they can.

2:08:492:08:58

And that's all they can do. They're

not quite putting the stones where

2:09:032:09:08

they want so they will keep trying.

Sara McManus has been absolutely

2:09:082:09:19

superb. I've enjoyed watching her

play. Doesn't matter what shot she's

2:09:192:09:25

been asked to make she's been very

accurate.

2:09:252:09:32

accurate.

Sara McManus has been

asked to I think run the top yellow

2:09:352:09:41

into the back ones. Oh, no, she's

come past the side. Great shot.

2:09:412:09:47

Ping, ping. Out they go.

Yeah, I

mean, their whole demeanour, they've

2:09:472:10:00

got just that comfortable lead of

four stones and they can relax and

2:10:002:10:07

play some really, really impressive

curling.

2:10:072:10:13

curling.

So Sara McManus with a

superb shot there. Taking both of

2:10:132:10:18

those Korean stones. And now Korea

will keep trying again. Trying to

2:10:182:10:24

use that guard that's out there, the

corner guard. Get something working.

2:10:242:10:37

They're all just plugging away.

Another nice draw in the guard from

2:10:412:10:46

Korea.

Sweden get a little bit

overconfident but they're running

2:10:462:10:51

out of stones here and running out

of opportunities.

2:10:512:10:58

of opportunities.

So that is right

in behind the corner.

That's like

2:11:002:11:04

one of those things you see at the

start of all four of them coming to

2:11:042:11:09

play light. You know what I mean.

Never mind. Charlie's Angels or

2:11:092:11:15

something. They all walk up to the

camera and look and end up in a

2:11:152:11:20

line. The four of them have been

sensational all week. And they've

2:11:202:11:25

found their best form at the right

time, beating Great Britain in the

2:11:252:11:33

semifinal. Played well on that

occasion. And they have been

2:11:332:11:42

relentless in this final.

So what's

the decision? Going to take away the

2:11:422:11:49

high corner? Looking to just skinny

that and maybe come across. Don't

2:11:492:11:58

think, it's way too high to get some

of the reds. But if she catches it

2:11:582:12:03

thin enough.

You wouldn't put

anything past McManus at the minute,

2:12:032:12:09

would you?

2:12:092:12:13

They can't hear me down there, can

they?

If you're concerned at all

2:12:262:12:33

that you're going to struggle with

coming off the curling over the last

2:12:332:12:38

two weeks and gain some post

competition blues, then there is

2:12:382:12:43

going to be some more kind of bonus

coverage, if you like, to help you

2:12:432:12:47

come off it slowly. We have got a

challenge kind of event between the

2:12:472:12:53

two British Olympic teams - the

men's and the women's against the

2:12:532:12:58

reigning Scottish champions crowned

in the last few weeks. The women's

2:12:582:13:04

champions and the best of three

games in Perth. And you can catch

2:13:042:13:09

some of the coverage on BBC Sport.

Go to the website to find out

2:13:092:13:13

details about that. And the world

juniors are coming up in Aberdeen at

2:13:132:13:18

the start of March too. So plenty

more curling to feast your eyes on.

2:13:182:13:25

That maybe sums up that exclamation.

That is not moving at all. Straight

2:13:372:13:44

all the way down almost. Although

it's in there, it didn't turn,

2:13:442:13:54

hardly curling.

2:13:542:14:01

So this is a dilemma. These stones

are pretty much just biting the

2:14:032:14:09

eight foot, touching it. Do you draw

to the one foot and hit or hit and

2:14:092:14:15

roll and lose one? That's where the

strategy of the game and the tactics

2:14:152:14:19

of the game come into play. You

really have to play the shot you're

2:14:192:14:23

most comfortable with. As long as

you call the shot and you make it,

2:14:232:14:27

it's the right shot I think.

2:14:272:14:35

So do of course have the hammer --

Sweden do of course have the hammer

2:14:462:14:51

in this ninth end. They could wrap

it up here. Korea could keep it

2:14:512:14:57

going.

2:14:572:15:02

going. Sweden now lie shot. They'll

just try and use this red and try

2:15:032:15:10

and tuck in behind the red at the

top of the house. Still trying,

2:15:102:15:15

Korea. Still hoping that a mistake

appears from nowhere.

2:15:152:15:27

appears from nowhere. It would have

to be a massive error from

2:15:272:15:34

Hasselborg, which I don't think will

happen. There is no evidence she

2:15:342:15:40

will make any big mistakes based on

the play today.

2:15:402:15:49

the play today. Kim EunJung trying

her best to keep her team hanging on

2:15:502:15:53

here. She's not been at her best

today, that's for sure. But really

2:15:532:15:58

hasn't been allowed to play, hasn't

been allowed to get her team into

2:15:582:16:03

this match at all. The crowd just

cheering that one.

2:16:032:16:14

cheering that one. The opportunity

of a gold medal has pretty much

2:16:142:16:18

disappeared. The silver medal, as we

said earlier, is something which I'm

2:16:182:16:23

not sure kneof them would have

dreamt about about, thought about

2:16:232:16:27

before these Olympic Games started.

They've been the stars of the show

2:16:272:16:31

for much of the week but they've had

to play second fiddle to Sweden

2:16:312:16:36

today. I just wonder if she gets the

one here, whether we'll see a hand

2:16:362:16:43

shake. It will be 8-3.

2:16:432:16:51

shake. It will be 8-3. So Anna

Hasselborg, Sara McManus watching

2:16:512:16:53

on. The Swedish team have been by

far the best in this final and this

2:16:532:16:57

could well be the end of the match

here. She just wants to get a one.

2:16:572:17:04

Which she does. Sweden lead 8-3. Now

what's going to happen here? The

2:17:042:17:12

Korean team come and have a chat

with each other. Sweden know the

2:17:122:17:17

gold medal is theirs. There's no way

they're going to give up five in the

2:17:172:17:21

last end. Is it worth going on?

I

really expected to see these girls

2:17:212:17:29

shake hands.

Here we go. It's

Sweden's gold medal. A clinical

2:17:292:17:37

performance from Sweden. Controlled

the match from the early stages.

2:17:372:17:41

Never allowed Korea to get the crowd

going, get them excited. And they

2:17:412:17:47

are jumping for joy. And Korea have

got so much to be proud of. Not the

2:17:472:17:53

gold medal they and their country

hoped for. That goes to Sweden. The

2:17:532:17:58

third time Sweden have won the gold

medal in the last four Olympic Games

2:17:582:18:02

and it was a silver the last time.

They have been getting better and

2:18:022:18:06

better all the way through the

competition. The victors over Great

2:18:062:18:11

Britain in the semifinals. They've

now they'ven Korea in the final.

2:18:112:18:15

Sweden -- they've beaten Korea in

the final. Sweden win the gold. And

2:18:152:18:21

Korea settle for silver. Well, three

of them have been together for so

2:18:212:18:32

long and Hasselborg and the two-time

Olympic must have enjoyed that --

2:18:322:18:39

champion must have enjoyed that.

Congratulations to Sweden. Sweden

2:18:392:18:50

too good. In their fourth

consecutive Olympic curling final,

2:18:502:18:56

winning three of them. We saw some

sports history because that was

2:18:562:19:00

Korea's first-ever medal in curling.

Congratulations to Sweden and Korea.

2:19:002:19:08

It's with regards to tonight's

closing ceremony. The IOC executive

2:19:082:19:13

board has recommended that Russian

athletes should not be allowed to

2:19:132:19:16

march under their own flag. The full

membership will vote on that

2:19:162:19:21

proposal later on today and of

course we'll keep you updated as

2:19:212:19:24

things happen, as soon as they do.

On a lighter note, however, Twitter

2:19:242:19:29

- we've been asking you to get in

touch. And asking you what is your

2:19:292:19:34

moment of the Games? Lots of you

have been in touch. "It is simply

2:19:342:19:40

Shaun White. The halfpipe gold

medal. It's amazing how we pulled it

2:19:402:19:44

out of the bag when it seemed all

over for him." "Thanks for getting

2:19:442:19:48

me through the nights due to the

last few days of pregnancy. Arnold

2:19:482:19:55

and Morgan for me." Good luck with

your birth. A few names on offer. We

2:19:552:20:03

have Billy, Lizzie, Laura and Dom.

Then we have Stu who says, "When Don

2:20:032:20:13

Parsons won bronze in skeleton, I

think I'm dreaming." No, you did win

2:20:132:20:19

an Olympic medal. "The commentary

team of Tim Ward anded Lee

2:20:192:20:26

informative, descriptive, very

humorous. Get them their own chat

2:20:262:20:30

show. He said he came with crayons

and left with a Monet." Hopefully

2:20:302:20:40

more lines from the commentary team.

Now, though, while we've been

2:20:402:20:44

speaking there is action happening

over at the Olympic

2:20:442:20:49

Radzi Chinyanganya introduces live coverage of the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The action includes the women's curling gold-medal match, the conclusion of the four-man bobsleigh and the men's ice hockey gold-medal game. In the latter, Canada are the defending champions, but they have been hamstrung by not being able to select any players from the NHL.
