The win marked only the second Olympic medal the United States has ever won in curling and the first since 2006. The U.S. athletes have released a statement saying that the International Biathlon Union's recent decision to move forward with the event despite Russia's recent doping scandal is "completely unacceptable". "Instead of just shaking hands, it was one of those moves that you're trying to give the crowd, all the disappointment we felt, give them a little something back". It won the USA championship in 2015, setting in motion the road to an improbable Olympic gold.

"We always knew we had it in us, but to do it when it matters most is what I'm most proud of overall". Shortly after play began, Ivanka Trump entered the curling center to watch.

But they rattled off three straight wins including an upset of Canada to make the medal round and followed it with a second win over the three-time defending Olympic champions in the semi-final.

To make things more dramatic, they were on the verge of elimination from playoff contention after starting the round-robin part of the tournament 2-4 with an embattled skip who had endured his share of Olympic failures.

Sweden wins the silver medal for the second time since curling returned to the Olympics in 1998.

The others: John Landsteiner, Matt Hamilton and Tyler George, who runs a Duluth, Minnesota, liquor store.

"From the day the 2014 Olympics came to an end, every single day was with this journey in mind", said Shuster, adding that he was inspired by Jansen's ability to bounce back from six years of tragedy and Olympic failure to win his final speedskating race.

In fact, after the Sochi Winter Games, skip John Shuster was excluded from the new USA Curling high-performance program.

The US curlers were Shuster, vice-skip Tyler George, Hamilton, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo, who will now have get a 2018 Olympics tattoo to go with the logo from the Turin Games he has on his right shoulder.

U.S. curlers' first gold medals were the wrong ones
The victory was as decisive as it was unexpected — to everyone, perhaps, but the Americans themselves. The Norwegians have 13 gold medals, 14 silver medals and 11 bronze medals, for a total of 38.

The Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Austria and South Korea sit behind the United States. The federation has been told by the Court of Arbitration's Anti-Doping Division that the International Olympic Committee has filed a case against Sergeeva. Sweden was one of them, winning silver.

Shuster's team did it again in the semifinals.

Neither team had the advantage in a taut match through five frames of a 10-end competition.

Curling is played on a sheet of ice that's 150 feet long and almost 16.5 feet wide.

The target area on the sheet is the house. Each stone that's closer than the opponents' brings one point.

As NPR describes, the victory for John Shuster was a long time in the making.

The games often last 2-3 hours.

Without NHL stars Sidney Crosby and Drew Doughty, elite goaltender Carey Price — and certainly don't forget Stanley Cup-winning coach Mike Babcock — Canada was skated out of the building by coach Marco Sturm's team that now faces an even stiffer test in the favored Russians in Sunday's final.
