Team USA celebrates on the podium after winning curling men's gold medal game between the USA and Sweden during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the Gangneung Curling Centre in Gangneung on February 24, 2018.

"We've played our best when our backs were up against the wall", said Tyler George, the United States of America vice skip. In Sochi, the men's team came in ninth place and at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, the squad came in last place.

He responded by losing 35 pounds and starting up his own team, which soon earned the nickname "The Rejects".

Team USA, comprised of Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner, was overjoyed to take home the big win in Pyeongchang and it definitely wasn't an easy road.

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.

The Swedes achieved a double to narrow the score to 10-7 but shook hands during the final end with the situation irretrievable. Call it the Miracurl on Ice.

BBC's curling commentator Steve Cram said: "America have thoroughly deserved this, they deserve all the plaudits they've got".

And while it appeared the USA team would once again flop after losing four of its first six games in round-robin play here.

During the ensuing medal ceremony, there was a minor mix-up and the US team did not actually receive their own medals.
