Winter Olympics spoiler alert: Women's curling gold

Results of women's curling gold.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia ó Sweden went the distance in capturing another gold medal in Olympic womenís curling, beating a Canadian team cheered by a cowbell-clanging crowd.
Anette Norberg played through the din, nailing the last shot to give her team a 7-6 victory in an extra 11th end Friday to spoil the Canadian party.
Sweden defended its gold medal from Turin four years ago, defeating Cheryl Bernardís Canadian foursome before a sellout crowd of 5,600.
Norberg was unfazed by the deafening noise from the fans who packed the arena to cheer a team that was relatively unknown outside Canada until making this remarkable run.
