U.S. wins first mixed doubles curling game

Olympics-Curling-Canadians avenge loss to setup golden…

John Morris wasn't making any excuses after Canada's disappointing start to the inaugural Olympic mixed doubles curling competition. We are playing good, consistent curling and grinding out some good wins, Morris said.

In the case of a four-way tie, it was unclear Saturday on whether or not the USA would have to play a tiebreaker match, but even if they won that match they would not reach the playoffs. Once the possibility of mixed doubles being played in PyeongChang became a reality, Matt, now 28, and Becca, 27, decided they'd love to be able to compete together.

"We just need to continue to grow and get more comfortable with the ice, play up little by little, and just try and hope we get enough wins in the round robin to qualify for the playoff".

The saying goes that blood is thicker than water, but for Team USA's inaugural mixed doubles curling team, the two can be a golden combination so long as the water is kept below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. "It was just kind of a bonehead play not taking the power play in six". "We had a couple of unfortunate steals there when we had to score".

"He brought me into the game, so I guess what better partner can I find than someone that brought me up?" she told Inside Edition. "I mean, right from the first rock - ideal draws, flawless taps, double-takeouts, a couple in-offs".

He said, "You're going to go out and play". If me and Matt are fighting we're not going to get anywhere on the ice. "I was forced to go watch him in the championship final down at the curling club and after the final, his coach pulled me out on the ice and I've never looked back since". "Since we've done that our performance has improved immensely". "I've practiced with Matt my whole life so he knows instantly what I'm doing wrong and vice versa". It's much faster paced than traditional curling. "Sometimes it takes a little maintenance but for the most part they hold up pretty good and it works out". "I don't think he missed a shot after that". Can I get a #HamFam?!

"Wang Rui is young.this is her first Olympics". And in this match between representatives of rival nations, there were no signs of awkwardness out on the sheet - other than an incident midway through, when Matt Hamilton got tangled up with his counterpart, Alexander Krushelnitskiy.
