The U.S. men's team is heading to its first gold medal game in Olympics history after upsetting curling powerhouse Canada Thursday morning.

And last but not least, US women's curling team member Becca Hamilton had to give her brother a snarky little shoutout.

Shuster's journey of Olympic bronze in 2006, followed by failure in 2010 and 2014 and eventual removal from the US team, was one of high emotion.

Team Shuster went on to win the US Championships in 2015, beating teams from the USA Curling high performance program.

Against the Swedes, the US broke a tie with a massive double-knockout in the eighth end, scoring five points to take a 10-5 lead.

"We always knew we had it in us, but to do it when it matters most is what I'm most proud of overall", Tyler George told CNN.

Garlic Girls: South Korean curling team ward off more seasoned rivals
South Korean skaters stayed in third place until the 24th cycle, while Canada and China exchanged the lead. But that did not affect Choi's final spurt to the finish line, edging out the Chinese anchor.

After the ceremony they checked out their bounty and realized that, aside from team member John Landsteiner, each of them had been given the gold medal for "women's curling". "I have a choice to rewrite my story, to write the story of this team, '" Shuster said. With its intense sweeping action, stones that looks like a Pokeball-hockey puck hybrid, a Mario look-a-like and Norwegian fancy trousers, what's not to love about the Winter Olympics' longest sport (with 18 consecutive days of play)? "The ball has to feel right when it hits the webbing".

"In the eighth end we don't exactly get the rocks where we wanted them and they put a lot of rocks in the house and we were forced to go all in", explained Edin.

"It wasn't a big deal at all, I promise", John Shuster said.

Sweden purposefully blanked the first end after both teams quickly ran through rocks, none of which stayed.

But Shuster brushed off the mix-up as the team celebrated their famous and unexpected victory, which was sealed by a rare five-pointer with two ends to go.

The U.S. stole a point in the fourth after a measurement to determine shot stone to take their first lead, 3-2.
