Sweden won gold in men’s curling after defeating Great Britain 5-4 in an extra end on Saturday -- as Niklas Edin and Sweden finally became Olympic champions.
It has been a steady creep to the top for Sweden, who won silver at the 2018 PyeongChang Games, bronze at the 2014 Sochi Games and finished fourth at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
"It feels so crazy, I almost had to ask someone before I came here, 'We have won, right?'" Sweden's Niklas Edin said.
"Very tight games and a lot of emotions out there. We felt that we played good enough and that we’re worthy champions but it still felt completely insane and when it actually happens it is hard to understand."
Meanwhile, Team GB picked up a silver to claim the nation’s first medal of the 2022 Winter Games. On Friday, Canada beat the US 8-5 to earn the bronze.
