Canada's Morris and Lawes win fourth straight in Olympic mixed doubles

11 February 2018

The 2018 Winter Olympics are underway in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and to no one's surprise, a curler has stolen the show.

The U.S. team never trailed until the final end of the game, scoring one point in each of the first, second and fourth ends to take a 3-1 lead at the midway point.

The offense stalled from there though, as they were only able to muster one point over the next four ends, and another single point in the seventh. They managed to get their first five stones into the house, putting the Americans in a precarious position.

"As far as practice goes you can't beat that time together", Matt said. The stone ended up a few inches past its target, prompting the disappointed siblings to slam their brooms against the ice. If Norway wins, they will automatically reach the semifinals along with Switzerland. Flawless scores in professional-level curling are so unusual that various countries' curling clubs have special awards for them.

This is surprising, as there are only a few hours left until the National Basketball Association trade deadline hits. He's a difference-maker, for sure, but he might not be enough on his own to take a team to contention status.

Rios laughed when asked if he was aware he and his teammate had set a record for first ideal curling score at the games. "We're playing good, consistent curling and then getting some good wins", said Morris.

Despite the rough loss, the Hamiltons were gracious in defeat.

Matt and Becca Hamilton are the lone United States representatives in this eight-team tournament. "They're defending world champs, so hats off to them".

Just as their unique relationship sometimes increases tension on the ice, it makes every win, every tournament and every shared experience that much more meaningful.

The result followed the Hamiltons' 9-1 loss to Korea in six ends on Friday night.

Afterward, Becca Hamilton said they were struggling to get used to the condition of the ice.

"I've got more of a bruised ego than a bruised tail bone", he said.

"I see the difference... the one on the right is missing the back shoe", one user wrote.

Norway defeated Canada 9-6 and Switzerland outlasted China 7-5 in an extra ninth end to complete the opening ties of round-robin play.

Norway had a stone approximately one inch closer to the pin than Finland, just enough to earn its fourth win and keep pace with Canada and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation atop the round-robin standings.
