Miracurl on Ice: USA wins first curling gold at Winter Olympics Miracurl on Ice: USA wins first curling gold at Winter Olympics

Canada's Olympic curling nightmare was completed on Friday when the men's team, gold medalists in the last three Games, lost 7-5 to Switzerland in the bronze medal match.

Team Shuster would go on to take first in two USA national championships as well as the November qualifying trials for the Pyeongchang Olympics.

"We've played our best when our backs were up against the wall", USA vice Tyler George said after it was all over.

"This is something you'll remember for the rest of your life", he said. I've not been emotional because it's just shock. "There's a reason why we play it, and there's a reason why we love it as much as we do".

John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes did win mixed doubles gold in Pyeongchang in its Olympic debut.

The U.S. had never won Olympic gold in men's or women's curling. Or silver. Only one bronze.

Shuster's team did it again in the semifinals. USA Hockey even reached out to other players, trying to cobble together a replacement team before both sides reached an agreement after pressure from 20 US senators.

Skip (the captain and head strategist) John Shuster, was cast aside by USA Curling after 2014's last place finish in Sochi and the organization instated heavy reform to improve it's game, according to a story by Jay Busby of Yahoo!

Shuster was initially not invited.

The U.S. won its first curling gold medal after beating Sweden 10-7 early Saturday morning.

"For me and John..."

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) - The Canadians made sure they aren't going home from the Olympics empty-handed, even after missing out on a third straight gold medal. "I mean, you can also live with leberkase and weisswurst, and yesterday was a day like this".

It took a while for Team USA to find its peak in these games.

Five consecutive victories culminated Saturday night in something that has never happened before: an Olympic gold for the US curlers as they defeated Sweden, 10-7, before a flag-waving throng from back home. He was a lead on the US team that won bronze in 2006.

"Indigenous people need strong role models and Brigette is that", says Yellow Horn, whose message to the first-time Olympian was how proud they were of her and that she has many more Olympic Games ahead of her. "As a Canadian I am embarrassed", added one Twitter user. "The way we came out and started this game after a disappointing loss last night I thought it really showed the character of the group".

In their final five games, through round robin play and the two playoff games, the US never allowed more than two points in a single end.

The United States had to beat Canada - Canada! - twice in four days just to reach the final. For that reason and more, members of the team expressed hope that curling would become more than a cultural curiosity every four years. The world's best players are playing in National Hockey League games and not allowed to compete from Olympic gold. "We took it to another level this week". And in explaining his point of view, Fasel managed to get another shot in at Canada.

"You know we learned from it".

Only one other team, perennial power Canada, has ever delivered a higher-scoring end in a gold-medal match at the Olympics. Each team has four players and an alternate (who usually sits with the coach just off the playing area). "I'm so proud that I was able to do something similar".
