Curling Mixed Doubles Round-Robin Qualifying Friday Results at Olympics 2018

Curling Mixed Doubles Round-Robin Qualifying Friday Results at Olympics 2018”

They shared their Olympic debuts not only with each other, but also with their event itself as these are the first Games to include mixed doubles.

"I think we had a strong game overall", Morris said. "We will know more in a couple of days", he said.

Eight teams are taking part in mixed curling at the Pyeongchang Olympics, with the top-4 qualifying for the medal round.

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. "Walking in the opening ceremony would be fantastic but at the end of the day, you're standing on your feet for a long time so I don't think it's conducive to performance, especially having a game so early in the morning (Saturday)".

The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics' opening ceremony is Friday, but the first competitions are already under way.

The Hamilton's will compete in the very first competition of the Winter Games Wednesday against Team OAR at 7:05 p.m. eastern time. "We had a really good team practice yesterday and got the rocks dialed in".

'Disturbed' by Maldives emergency, monitoring situation carefully, says India
India had yesterday asked its nationals to defer all nonessential travels to the Indian Ocean nation until further notice. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he was "gravely concerned" about the Maldives situation.

"I went down to watch my brother, he was finishing up a tournament and his coach forced me out on the ice and I guess I never looked back after that", she said. "We were lying two, but they had a few outs so we wanted to make sure we gave Kaitlyn a shot for two rather than no shot for two".

From then on the Canadians dominated, inducing hand shakes from the Chinese in the seventh end and from the Finns in the sixth. While OAR got a point back in the sixth off of the power play, their mistakes caught up to them.

"When we were teenagers, obviously being so close in age and being angsty kids, we kind of butted heads as youth", Matt said. "Because curling's one of those games, it's a smooth game but you're timed and you got to play with pace so it's just one of those things, 'slow is smooth, smooth is fast, ' it made sense and here we are and it's paid off so far".

The U.S. will conclude play on Sunday morning against Finland (0-5). "They've seen everything in the house and get to sweep every rock".

Morris and Lawes had little experience playing mixed doubles together prior to winning January's trials - a competition where they rebounded to qualify after losing three of their first five games.
