Eve Muirhead sealed Great Britain's place at next year's Winter Olympics after reaching the play-off round of the Women's World Curling Championships in Beijing.
Muirhead steered her Scotland team to a 7-6 win over the Czech Republic to book a meeting with Sweden on Saturday and confirm qualification for Pyeongchang.
Assuming her selection is confirmed, the 26-year-old Muirhead will lead her team into her third Olympics, having won a bronze medal in Sochi in 2014.
Muirhead said: "We were at that stage where win, win, win was what we had to do.
"Our first goal was to make the play-offs and we've ticked that box. Our next goal is to make the semi-finals and then onwards from there."
