There will be no Gold Medal this Winter Olympic Games for the USA Men's Curling Team, with the group led by Duluth's John Shuster falling in the semi-final against Great Britain.

Needing two points to tie it in the 10th end, Shuster was left with a tough final stone, and was unable to make it count, giving GB two more points for an 8-4 victory.

It will mean Team USA will head to the Bronze Medal game on Friday – against Canada of all teams.

Great Britain only lost one game in the round robin leading up to the semi-final, but it was a 9-7 loss to the USA, so Thursday's game was expected to be extremely tight.

After finding themselves 3-2 down early on, Shuster hit back in the 4th end to put USA 4-3 ahead.

But Great Britain responded immediately in the fifth, with Britain skipper Bruce Mouat leading his team to a 5-4 lead.

Able to add one more in the following ends, the teams entered the 10th with GB 6-4 ahead, with Team USA unable to tie it up, sending Britain through to the Gold Medal game against Sweden.
