Canada breezes past OAR to clinch mixed doubles playoff berth

The official Team U.S.A. account then came through in the clutch, creating a side-by-side comparison of Hamilton and Hamilton with Mario's head delivering a stone during one of Thursday's round robin matchups. Unfortunately, the US team lost to the Canadian team in the second match 6-4.

Hamilton and his sister Becca Hamilton were among some of the first competitors to take to the ice.

"A 10- or 15-minute bus ride turning into an hour". "Kaitlyn made some real beauties.We're building some real good momentum".

Then on Friday, they started looking like a true gold medal contender. "So we'll have to tighten up a bit and hopefully get a win tomorrow". The Mixed doubles matches are now over, but both Hamiltons will compete in the single-sex tournaments. I think he was really connecting with the ice.

The top four nations will qualify for the medal round after a round robin round of eight countries - South Korea, United States, Canada, Norway, Finland, China, Switzerland and Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

A team includes a curler, who pushes the stone, and two sweepers. We played strong and had a good win. Their 9-4 loss to Switzerland on Friday came as a result of the Swiss posting the equivalent of a flawless game in baseball.

"It's sure nice to have the evening off", Morris said. Anastasia Bryzgalova and Aleksandr Krushelnitskiy used a methodical approach with single points in four of the five ends they scored, including one in the decisive extra end. "We know we're in for a tough one tonight".


"Unfortunately there's not free bingo spaces here", said Lawes.

But before the game between Canada and Switzerland - which the Canadians went on to win 7-2 - there was a malfunction in the tablet used to calculate distances measured by a laser device, causing Lawes, Morris, coach Jeff Stoughton and team leader Paul Webster to question the validity of the results.

With each team sliding eight rocks apiece during a turn or an "end", there are plenty of potential outcomes.

Everything seemed to change in the fifth end against China when Morris snuffed out a rally by making an outstanding triple takeout. Teams at the world championships have been composed of husbands and wives, siblings like the Hamiltons, fathers and daughters and even a grandfather-granddaughter team from Kazakhstan, said Derek Brown, the USA Curling Director of High Performance. The two shook hands, and Hamilton headed back to the other end with a smile on his face. The Finns had seen enough at that point.

Now, Cotter is passing on his experience to the Korean team in the new Olympic event, which begins Thursday.

"They've been going the right way", said Stoughton. "We'll come back stronger".
