The married team of Aleksandr Krushelnitckiy and Anastasia Bryzgalova claimed the first Olympic medal in curling mixed doubles with bronze win.

The Russian couple sealed an 8-4 victory over the Norwegian pair of Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten scoring a point in each of the last three ends.

"It's very important that we are family," said Bryzgalova. "That was very important in order to survive yesterday's (semi-final) loss.

"Just to come out here today and to make the match that we can be proud about. The fact that we are family helped us a lot."

Canada face world champions Switzerland later on Tuesday to decide the gold.
