Now, the 23-year-old insists that the all-Scottish team are pushing on for more glory.
"When I first started curling an Olympic medal never crossed my mind," Muirhead is quoted as saying by Teamgb.com. "Over the last few years, as we've started to win championships and tournaments around the world, we started to believe we could compete on this stage.
"A bronze medal is fantastic but this team isn't finished yet. We have a fantastic future ahead of us. So far we have had a very successful career, winning several major championships.
"The one medal I was missing was the Olympic medal and now I've got that. We're going to keep training hard, push for Korea and push further up the podium."
Team GB have won four medals at this year's Winter Olympics.
