Scotland beat Switzerland to win the 2022 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships title in Geneva on Saturday (30 April).

Having previously won Olympic, World, and European titles, Scotland's Eve Muirhead became the only female curler to complete a rare quadruple of international titles by adding the mixed event crown. "That's the set for me," she said to World Curling afterwards.

The score of 9-7 was the winning margin for Muirhead and Scottish teammate Bobby Lammie.

"It's been a phenomenal year for myself and my girls at home and to cap it off today with Bobby was really special," Muirhead continued.

"Absolutely delighted to get another gold medal and I'm sure we'll enjoy the celebrations."

Muirhead and Lammie world class in Geneva

The Scottish double act came into the final with a 100% record and were in no mood to relinquish it in the one that mattered most.

They stormed into a 7-2 lead by half-time and looked like they might run away with it, Lammie setting the Scots up for a huge four-point score in the first end.

Switzerland's Sven Michel and Alina Paetz rallied and began to remember their lines and suddenly a Swiss comeback looked on the cards as they slid to within a point of the Scots.

But in the final two ends, Muirhead used all her experience and scored two points on her final stone to seal victory by 9-7.

Scotland's Eve Muirhead, who skipped Great Britain's women to gold at Beijing 2022, and Olympic silver medallist Bobby Lammie, booked their place in Saturday's gold medal game by defeating Germany's Klaudius Harsch and Pia-Lisa Scholl 8-3 in the first semi-final match on Friday.

Victory over semi-finalists Germany marked what has been an impressive week so far for both Muirhead and Lammie who, in addition not to having lost all week, also have not given up a single steal.

Having previously won Olympic, World, and European titles, Muirhead is bidding for a rare quadruple in Geneva. The only other curler to have have clinched all three titles as well as the mixed doubles world crown is Sweden's Oskar Eriksson, vice skip to Niklas Edin.

Switerland's five-time world champion Alina Paetz and 2014 Winter Olympian Sven Michel booked their spot after a tense extra end, beating Norway 8-7 in a thrilling semi.
