Canada Win Gold,Scotland Bronze,In World' Women's Curling Championship

Scotland beat Sweden 6-4 to take bronze as Canada won gold at the World Women's Curling
Rachel Homan's rink beat Anna Sidorova's European champions, Russia, 8-3 in the final in Beijing.
Eve Muirhead's Scots had lost 8-5 to Anna Hasselborg's Swedes in the third-versus-fourth play-off on Saturday.
After gaining revenge, skip Muirhead told World Curling: "It's been a tough week, a lot of ups and downs. To come away with a medal is satisfying."
The Scotland quartet of Muirhead, Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Lauren Gray had finished fourth in the round-robin behind Canada, Russia and Sweden.
After Canada beat Russia in the first versus second play-off on Friday, the Swedes beat the Scots but then faced a re-match after losing their semi-final 9-3 to Russia.
Muirhead's rink found themselves tied at 4-4 after eight ends in Sunday's bronze medal match.
But Muirhead's final stone in the ninth end was a perfectly weighted draw and Hasselborg failed in her take-out attempt as her stone glided through the paint.
