Record breaking Muirhead's got the winning feeling

14 February 2014 / 13:41

Great Britain curling skip Eve Muirhead claims her rink have a winning momentum after another record breaking performance at the Winter Olympics.

Muirhead's team rewrote the history books with a seven in a single end against the USA earlier in the Games and produced a steal for five - another Olympic best - against Japan today to secure a 12-3 victory.

The win gives Great Britain a record of three wins and two defeats from their five games and leaves them equal third in the round-robin stage at the halfway point of the event - with the top four teams progressing to decide the medals.

“The momentum has been starting to build and we continued it today," said Muirhead. 

"None of these teams are going to be easy, we knew Japan were going to come out sharp and we knew we had to come out firing from the start and that is exactly what we did. The girls are all playing really well, setting me up to play these shots – it was a good solid team performance.

“I am happy with the way I played today. We were enjoying ourselves out there and taking in all the atmosphere, feeling relaxed. We just need to continue that.”
