    Scotland skip Eve Muirhead and third Victoria WrightEve Muirhead's rink missed out on the chance of sealing an Olympic place for Great Britain

    A disappointing World Women's Curling Championship for Scotland will "hurt for a few days", says Eve Muirhead.

    Team GB representation at next year's Winter Olympics now rests on a qualifying event after Muirhead's rink missed out on a top-six place in Calgary, Canada.

    A 9-5 defeat by Denmark had left the Scots needing an unlikely sequence of results to fall their way and their hopes had already been ended before they lost 7-6 to China in the final round-robin contest.

    Defending champions Switzerland, the Russian Curling Federation, Sweden, Denmark, the USA and Canada all progress and have sealed places at Beijing 2022.

    After ending up eighth overall with a record of six wins and seven losses, Muirhead said: "It's never nice to be finished early.

    "It's been a really disappointing week for us in general.

    "We need to keep our heads up, which will be tricky, because it's going to hurt for a few days, I know that, but we'll do our best to not let it hurt too much."

    A qualification competition later this year will decide the final three Olympic places.
