SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Canada beat Sweden 6-3 on Thursday to win the Olympic women's curling gold medal for the first time since 1998.

Victory over the Swedes, who were seeking a third straight title, avenged a defeat for the Canadians in the final in 2010.

Britain beat Switzerland earlier on Thursday to claim bronze.
