Swiss curlers stun with flawless score to beat US

Canada could win all three gold medals: Everything you need to know about Olympic curling

"It's a let down to lose a game like when we felt like we had them, but oh well". The player who isn't throwing sweeps. It's called "positioning." One stone goes inside of the house near the button, and the other serves as a guard just in front of the house. A so-called "angle-raised takeout", she knocked out the Canadians' stones and ended up scoring three points in the second end of the match. "Everyone has earned their right and they're the best of the world".

Switzerland remains the only unbeaten team in the competition.

Canada, now 4-1 and atop the standings in PyeongChang, has never won a mixed doubles world championship, but looks like the favorites for gold through five games. Both players are making their Olympic debuts, and as a duo they are now ranked No. 2 in the world.

Other Twitter users also chimed in and joined in on the joke.

Canada finished second at Worlds, but neither of the players on this team, Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris, were on that team past year.

Morris, from Canmore, Alta., and Winnipeg's Lawes had little experience playing mixed doubles together prior to winning January's trials.

Both are hoping to go home with medals that are as gold as the power stars from "Super Mario".

Also on Thursday, former NHL veteran Chris Kelly was named captain of Canada's men's hockey team.

Killed, Scores Injured in Twin Bombing at Libya Mosque
The country has been since split between rival governments in the east and the west, each backed by an array of militias. Two weeks ago, at least 35 people were killed by twin vehicle bombings near another mosque in Benghazi.

They may be the most interesting team in the entire competition.

A promising start again turned into a Olympic mixed doubles curling loss for McFarland's Becca and Matt Hamilton.

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

In the case of a 4-way tie, it was unclear Friday on whether or not US would have to play a tiebreaker match, but even if they won that match they would not reach the playoffs.

Mixed doubles begins Wednesday night with round robins.

Eight teams are competing in the newly introduced Olympic event with the top four finishers in the preliminaries qualifying for the semifinals.

It is not exactly the height of the Cold War, but there is always a frisson when the United States of America meets Russian Federation as it did in the opening curling match of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
