Russia’s men’s curling team beat Germans in a game that was no longer relevant.
Alexander Kozyrev, Alexey Stukalsky and Pyotr Dron were stronger 8-7 but the victory won’t bring them any closer to the pedestal.
After nine games, they finished seventh, ahead of Switzerland, USA and Germany.
Curling is a new sport in Russia, and it’s just gaining ground.
