South Korean wheelchair curlers celebrate after beating China 7-6 in a round-robin match at the Pyeong Chang Winter Paralympics at Gangneung Curling Centre in Gangneung Gangwon Province

A Canadian curling team that had laughed and smiled its way through a roller-coaster Pyeongchang Paralympics was a puddle of tears after capturing bronze. They gathered for a group hug.

"It's so fantastic. I can't even describe it", she said. "This was very emotional". I never thought I'd be out here today. Seeing from the humble beginnings that it started to where it is now and how popular it is, the level of riding it's at and the next generation that has come up since I've been racing [makes me believe] the sport is in good hands. "I can't be happier". They waved back at their families with tears in their eyes. "You want the gold", Ideson said. He suffered multiple fractures in his legs, pelvis, sternum, nose and neck. The accident claimed the life of his mother and two brothers. "I played my heart out and that team is my second family". So I'm really proud of how everyone played (Thursday). "I have had a lot of feedback from home".

The 57-year-old from Moose Jaw, Sask., was driving on a dirt road in 1988 when she swerved to avoid a grain truck that had stopped suddenly with no brake lights. "You make a dream or goal, and you can achieve it, whether it's starting from the smallest province or a small town, you can get onto the world stage, you can win Paralympic titles".

She was thinking about all four of her daughters after the game.

Saturday's bronze might as well have been gold.

Canada, South Korea and China all went 9-2 to finish the preliminary round tied atop the standings.
