S. Korean curling team earn 1st win at Winter Olympics

Canada holds on for win over Team USA in mixed doubles curling

"I make any of them and we're in a good position". They argued. Sometimes they even yelled. He explained now that the city has a hockey team, interest in ice sports is rising. "We both hate to lose, and we were losing a lot".

A promising start for the American mixed doubles curling team of McFarland's Becca and Matt Hamilton has gone awry.

They have squabbled on the ice since they were kids.

"Canada is one of the favourites and beating them in the first game is a really great feeling".

"We really capitalised on misses and got the win at the end of the day", Becca Hamilton said.

The safe word is a secret.

The United States had a successful head start into the Winter Olympics, upsetting the world champions from Russian Federation 9-3 in curling mixed doubles. "But I was also encouraged by the spectators' cheering".

Becca Hamilton came into the game shooting 75 percent, tops among all women in the competition. "That's the key (to the win)", said Stoughton.

Of note is that Lawes is the first curler to earn back to back visits to the Winter Games.

Finland's mixed doubles curler Tomi Rantamaeki throws a stone at a practice session at Gangneung Curling Center on February 7, 2018. He's making his fourth appearance at the Winter Olympics. But he has seen enough to know there could be land mines.

"She couldn't find a better partner", Matt quipped. "And that's hard to do with just two people".

Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes flashes the thumbs-up sign after winning against Finland during their mixed doubles curling.

"You want to be up four or five to one, but you have to keep control and keep managing the scoreboard and that's what we were doing early". The Swiss are one of the more formidable opponents in the field and Switzerland has won six of the 10 world championships in mixed doubles curling. They were wasting too much time quarreling over every little decision.

The Hamiltons jumped ahead 3-0 and needed only seven of eight ends to take the most lopsided win of the opening round-robin session.

But what is mixed doubles curling and why is it separate from the regular men's and women's events?

The incident came after a fan posted on Twitter on Wednesday night: 'Just watching the olympics [sic] during my night class and we have Mario on our curling team!' "You're going to try". They are considered top contenders at this event. "We're kind of paving the way for all our teams", she said.

Still, old habits can be hard to break. Since then, Becca has beaten Matt for countless times.

The Hamiltons finished ninth at Worlds, but don't let that fool you.
