Men's Curling Roundup


China through to semifinals in men's curling.

China beat Britain 6-5 to qualify for the Olympic semifinals in men's curling on Monday, leaving the British to play a tie-breaker against Norway for the final spot in the playoffs.

The tie-breaker will be played Tuesday.

With Britain losing its final round-robin game, the Norwegians would have won a guaranteed place in the last four by beating Denmark, but lost 5-3.

Britain and Norway finished the preliminary round-robin tied with a record of 5-4.

Sweden and Canada advanced on Sunday. Canada will play China in the semifinals and Sweden will take on the winner of the tie-breaker.

Also Monday, Germany lost 8-7 to Russia to finish in last place at 1-8. Switzerland won 6-3 against the United States.
