Muirhead wants her rink to get better and better in Sochi

Eve Muirhead wants her British women’s rink to build on their last stone victory over China at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Britain’s women’s curling rink continued their trend of losing then winning as Muirhead landed the last stone for an 8-7 defeat of China.

The victory follows swiftly on from the defeat to Canada on Wednesday while before that they beat the USA after an opening loss to Sweden.

Team GB are up against Japan next at the Ice Cube Curling Center, Muirhead wants to return and deliver another win as they look for all-important momentum.

“I am really pleased. It was a solid performance and I think we realised how important that game was. China are always going to be a really tough team, it was never going to be easy,” she said.

“Confidence is building and a little bit of momentum as well. Yes we have dropped our game against Sweden and Canada but they are two tough nations and we know we didn’t play great.

“We know we can play a lot better against them if we come up against them again but it is essential that we keep this solid performance going and get better and better.”
