The UK men’s irons team had to settle for silver as Sweden won 5-4 in Saturday’s tense final to claim the gold medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympics. As a result, 98 years Britain’s wait to win a gold medal in men’s volley continues.

The Bruce MouatThe -led side had an intriguing match to end extra time, but the Swedes were able to take advantage of their last kick to score. The last shot of the skipper to try and force the steal didn’t show up causing the Sweden captain Niklas Edin celebrate victory.

We’ve put in a lot of effort over the last 5 years and we can’t thank the National Lottery and UK Games enough for all the work they’ve done for us.

“Hope will always continue and we’ll work even harder to win that gold next time,” Mouat said in an interaction with BBC after the game.

“Trying to think how good our week was”

Edinburgh-born Mouat went on to say:

“It definitely pushes us forward. It’s still pretty raw. I think that’s going to happen for quite some time.

“We were top of the group and had a really good performance in the semi-final so I’m trying to think about other things than that game.

“I’m just trying to think about how good our week was and really proud of how we went about it.”

Grant Hardie speak: “Losing the final is sure to hurt for a while. You need to acknowledge (Sweden) a lot, especially the pressure that Niklas is under when he hasn’t won that gold.

“They played great.”

Meanwhile, Team Canada beat their neighbour, USA in the bronze medal match to finish third on the podium at Beijing 2022.
