Swiss beat Sweden for curling bronze
Switzerland captured their third Olympic men's curling medal in the last four Winter Games on Saturday by beating Sweden 5-4 to claim the bronze, dpa reported.
Swiss skip Ralph Stockli scored two points in the 10th and final end after poor final stone by Sweden skip Niklas Edin to add 2010 bronze to their 1998 gold and 2002 bronze medals.
Reigning Olympic champions Canada were facing Norway later Saturday in the gold medal match.
Sweden was the first team to score more than one point with two stones in the fifth for a 3-2 advantage.
Sweden were leading 4-3 in the ninth end and facing four Swiss stones in the house on Edin's last rock with the Swiss owning the final rock. But the Swedish skip took out all four stones and Switzerland elected to forgo a point.
In the 10th end, Edin failed to get his last stone closer than Switzerland's best rock in the house. And Stockli played a perfect draw for the winning two points.
"I can't believe this. This is a great day," said Switzerland's Markus Eggler.
Sweden were hoping to win their first medal in 86 years when they won silver in 1924. The sport was not on the Olympic programme from 1928 to 1994.
