"We are so happy to win the last Pacific-Asia Curling Championships!" said Yoshimura.

"Due to the result we believe in our performance in the future and in this game we were down against our opponent but we overcame in the last end.

"Now we can feel our good performance and believe in ourselves and our goal.

"I threw the draw for my first shot in the last end and we communicated with each team member about the weight, the feeling, the timing and the line.

"Then we confirmed this for my second draw and we made the final shot!"

Both teams qualify for the Women's World Curling Championship 2022 in Prince George in Canada.

In the men's game, skip Kim Chang-min, third Kim Soo-hyuk, second Jeon Jae-ik and lead Kim Hak-kyun avenged their female counterparts to lead South Korea to a 9-5 victory over Japan.

Following that, a steal of three points came for South Korea in the fourth end after Japan missed a raise take-out to go down 5-3.

South Korea continued to dominate the match and went on to win 9-5 after eight ends.

"I am so happy because my teammates played so well and I am so proud of them," said Kim Chang-min.

"We struggled with the ice before and in today’s game I struggled in the early ends.

"Japan played so well [throughout the week] but not this time – they didn’t play well – so that’s why we won."

The victory secures South Korea's spot at the World Men's Curling Championship 2022 in Las Vegas while Japan and Chinese Taipei have earned places at the World Qualification Event 2022.
