The gold medal game of women's Olympic Curling had people around the world feeling excited. It was a rematch between Sweden and Canada with both countries pulling for their teams. During the 2010 Vancouver Olympics the Swedish managed to pull off an upset, this time they weren't so lucky. According to ABC News it was Canada who became the new Olympic gold medal champions with Sweden unable to score for the win. The final score was 6-3.

One athlete that will get a big welcome when going home is Canadian skip Jennifer Jones. She unbelievably went through the tournament undefeated, winning 11 straight games. The impressive stat has everyone who loves curling appreciating her Olympic drive to win.

While the curling event might not have had a perfect outcome for Sweden, being that Canada has waited 16 years for a gold medal, the Swedish have to be proud of the tough competition they faced. This win also helped the Canada's women curlers who are getting some well-deserved recognition away from the men curlers who always seem to be in the spotlight.

After the Olympic women’s curling medals were given out for gold and silver, the fans turned their attention to the bronze medal. It was Britain who beat Switzerland 6-5 on Thursday to take the podium.
