Pyeongchang Olympics begin with mixed doubles curling

Pyeongchang Olympics begin with mixed doubles curling

The loudest cheers were reserved for the host South Korean team, which was also on the ice as part of the mixed-doubles tournament at the Gangneung Curling Center.

"It's the first time that they have ever had like a two-on-two slot format in the Olympics", Matt Hamilton told InsideEdition.com before he and his sister set off for the games. China (1-2) responded with a deuce in the second only for Canada to come back with four in the third to make it 7-2.

Saturday's 6-4 loss to Wang Rui and Ba Dexin of China ran their record to 1-4. Canada scored one point in the fourth, fifth and sixth ends, forcing a Swiss concession of the final two ends.

Down 7-6 in the eighth and final end, Canada was lying two when Morris bumped his team's rocks out of position while at the same time promoting a Norwegian stone - a mistake the Canadians would be unable to recover from as their opponents stole two to seal the win.

Canada opened with three in the first for an early lead. We played strong and had a good win. "And just knowing each other and having that kind of relationship early in our careers, it seemed like it made a lot of sense". "We got a little aggressive, we felt like were playing good, we were confident we could score a point there and I got a little heavy on my last rock and took the chances out of Becca's hands".

The Americans outshot China 77 percent to 74 percent for the game.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor Rematch Talks Ongoing
I can keep baiting him or what-not but he has the sparring video and that video is not going to come out so he's going to have the advantage over time.

"You're ready to go and you can be ready to shoot when your shot comes and it's just one of those things, like a tic that I do before I throw", Matt said.

However, the loss eliminated the US from reaching the semifinals.

"You look at the stats, we're right up there with the other teams - even better sometimes".

The Hamiltons shot well in their games, but suffered from a bit of bad luck. "We had a couple of unfortunate steals there when we had to score". Hopefully, we are going to have some tie-breakers in our favor later.

"Once it was an Olympic sport we were like 'hey, they (The U.S. Olympic Committee) can help facilitate the prize to get there and we can go as a team, brother-sister combo, '" Matt said in a recent interview. Finland was the only winless team (0-4) and had the daunting task of challenging Norway to get off the schneid.
