Great Britain women missed out on promotion as they were beaten 2-0 by Kazakhstan in Sunday's gold-medal match at the World Championship in Dumfries.

Goals from Madina Tursynova and Olga Konysheva gave Kazakhstan the victory that secured them an immediate return from Division 2A to Division 1B, which is two tiers below the top flight.

GB co-coach Michelle Smith said: "We gave everything and we're very proud."

Korea claimed the bronze medal with a 13-0 victory over Croatia.
