16 February 2014 / 20:24

There are 12 members of Team GB in action at the the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games today, competing in three sports.

Ice Cube Curling Centre
Team GB women v Russia 09.00-12.00 (local) 05.00-08.00 (UK), Team GB men v China 14.00-17.00 (local) 10.00-13.00 (UK), Team GB women v Denmark 19.00-22.00 (local) 15.00-18.00 (UK)

It is the final day of the round-robin stage and it holds massive importance for both the men’s and women’s Team GB rinks.

Skip David Murdoch’s men’s rink of Michael Goodfellow, Scott Andrews and Greg Drummond face a must-win match against in-form China to reach the play-offs.

And the women’s team of skip Eve Muirhead, Vicki Adams, Anna Sloan and Claire Hamilton play two matches against host nation Russia and then Denmark as they bid to advance. Both rinks are ranked beneath them and neither can progress through the round robin stage.

Sanki Sliding Centre
Runs Three and Four 18.30-21.00 (local) 14.30-17.00 (UK)

Pilot Lamin Deen and brakeman John Baines complete their campaign in the two-man bobsleigh with their third and fourth runs.

Deen and Baines placed 23rd after their opening two outings today and will focus on the four-man event afterwards, which starts this weekend.
