Olympics under way: United States of America beats Russian athletes in curling

John Morris left and Kaitlyn Lawes will represent Canada in Mixed Doubles Curling a new event Brother And Sister Curling Team Hope To Sweep Their Way To Olympic Gold

Mixed curling is one of four new events at the PyeongChang Games, along with the alpine ski team event, speed skating mass start for men and women, and men's and women's snowboard Big Air. We are playing good, consistent curling and grinding out some good wins, Morris said.

"We were throwing things heavy", Becca Hamilton said.

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

The 39-year-old from Ottawa and teammate Kaitlyn Lawes fell 9-6 to Norway's Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten in Thursday's opening draw thanks to some uncharacteristic mistakes at critical times. "Unfortunately, we came out on the wrong end of the stick there", Becca Hamilton said to reporters following the game.

After getting an early start Thursday, curling's mixed doubles round robin continued at the 2018 Winter Olympics on Friday.

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.

Canada restored its two point lead in the fourth and stole another in the fifth after Jang got her angles wrong with her closing stone.

"He brought me into the game, so I guess what better partner can I find than someone that brought me up?" said Becca.

"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. "He's making all the shots so I think his confidence is going in the right direction for sure". But then so was the manner in which they lost the game. We had the one-hour bus delay and it made for quite and interesting evening but these guys just said, 'There's nothing we can do about it ... let's go curl'.

The U.S. will conclude play on Sunday morning against Finland (0-5).

All of the Olympic curling matches in the second session take place simultaneously and it will be up to NBC's editors to decide how much of each match is shown.

As thirds, they both regularly sweep a lot of rocks and collaborate on game-calling with their skips.

Morris won his in Vancouver in 2010, and Lawes got hers in Sochi in 2014.

The last time Matt and Becca Hamilton faced off against Russian Federation in mixed doubles curling was at the 2017 World Championships, a match in which they were defeated 7-5.
