China bowed out of the semi-finals after being humbled by two-time defending gold medalists Canada, 6-10. The North Americans won the game within nine ends leaving their Asian counterparts without a chance of recovery.

The Chinese managed to close the gap in the eighth end and were 7-6, but a 3-0 score by their opponents ensured Marcel Rocque's side had to concede their quest for gold.

Sweden on the other hand were stunned by a last gasp victory by Great Britain. The Swedes led by Skip Niklas Edin led the game 5-4 in the ninth end but failed to prevent David Murdoch and co from registering a 2-0 score, thus condemning them to fight for the bronze.

The two teams last met in the round robin and the Swedes emerged victorious 6-5, needing an extra end after they were tied 5-5 by the 10th end.
