Winter Olympics 2018: Canada drops mixed doubles curling opener

Canada heads to gold medal match for mixed doubles curling after beating Norway

"They're a good team", Matt Hamilton said after the game. "The ice was nice and consistent, but I have to make sure I throw to my tolerance a bit more so that if I do miss, it's not a killer miss".

Curling Mixed Doubles: USA vs. Republic of Korea - Team Hamilton continues its quest for Olympic gold against the host nation.

The Americans started strongly and never looked back in a 9-3 win over married Russian couple Bryzgalova and Krushelnitskiy in the first of seven rounds of preliminary play.

After Switzerland tied the score for the first time in the seventh end, they took advantage of US mistakes, placing all of their rocks on the house for the five point win.

"I've got to be better than that".

Mixed doubles curling is being contested for the first time at these Olympic Games.

In power-play ends, the two pre-placed stones are at the side of the house instead of in the middle.

The Norwegian team of Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten proved to be worthy foes for Canada, and actually stole a point in the seventh end to take a 7-6 lead.

John Morris, who won an individual gold medal at the 2010 Olympics, was particularly adept at keeping Switzerland off the board with six takeouts.

After splitting their first two games of the tournament Thursday, the duo improved to 3-1 with a pair of victories on Day 2.

The siblings chose to try out for the sport after it was announced that it would be included in this year's Olympics.

Ottawa's Morris and Winnipeg's Lawes had little experience playing mixed doubles together prior to winning January's trials.

The Wisconsin mixed doubles curling team of Matt and Becca Hamilton dropped its second straight match on Thursday night, falling to Switzerland 9-4 and opening the 2018 Winter Olympics on a sour note for the U.S. National Team. "On to the next", Matt Hamilton said following the game.

Three years after Becca began her curling career, she beat Matt when they played one-on-one.

Eight teams are taking part in mixed curling at the Pyeongchang Olympics, with the top-4 qualifying for the medal round. "They're defending world champs, so hats off to them".

"We're going to have to be playing well and make a few more shots out there".
