Russia's curlers begin Olympics with loss to U.S. in mixed doubles

"We have faith that they're going to make a right decision for the fairness of all the teams".

"A 10- or 15-minute bus ride turning into an hour. See you in four years at the trials".

The Hamiltons lost 6-4 to the Canadian team of Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris in Gangneung, South Korea, to fall to 1-1 in the tournament.

Then on Friday, they started looking like a true gold medal contender. "They're trying to get it so precise but at the same time it's complicated and sometimes you get errors like this".

Finland's Oona Kauste and Tomi Rantamaeki missed their chance at the first win in PyeongChang by mere inches. "I'm really proud and honoured to be a part of this".

The pair picked up a hard-fought 6-4 victory over Matt and Becca Hamilton of the United States in the evening draw after dropping their opener 9-6 to Norway's Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten in the morning.

The offense stalled from there though, as they were only able to muster one point over the next four ends, and another single point in the seventh.

Norway will play China at 7:05 p.m.in both teams' final games of round robin play.

"It's sure nice to have the evening off", Morris said. We're building some good momentum. "We will know more in a couple of days", he said.

Lawes said the rest is necessary.

Johann Johannsson Dead - 'Theory Of Everything' Composer Dies at 48
He was reportedly found dead in his apartment, and his death was confirmed by his manager, but the cause of death is now unknown. Elijah Wood also paid tribute to the composer, who wrote the soundtrack for Mandy , a film Wood produced.

"We decided that we should try out for it because it is another opportunity in the Olympics", he said, noting the added advantage of competing with his sibling.

Earlier in the day, Canada had a similarly dominating performance with a 7-2 win over Switzerland. "There were probably three key shots in the later ends that I didn't execute that was the turning point of that game".

It might be a stretch to blame a faulty fifth end on delayed transportation. Teams at the world championships have been composed of husbands and wives, siblings like the Hamiltons, fathers and daughters and even a grandfather-granddaughter team from Kazakhstan, said Derek Brown, the USA Curling Director of High Performance. "I let him think he's the alpha".

Now, Cotter is passing on his experience to the Korean team in the new Olympic event, which begins Thursday. "That's the key (to the win)", said Stoughton. "It's fast-paced and we're constantly moving back and forth. We just didn't do it this week".

"It was actually pretty amusing", Morris said. Teams either can play aggressively by trying to slide more of their rocks into the house.

Maybe the US team was out of its normal rhythm.

On Thursday, South Korea will take on Finland in the morning and China in the afternoon.

Curling Mixed Doubles: USA vs. Republic of Korea - Team Hamilton continues its quest for Olympic gold against the host nation.

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. "I was making jokes about it during the last end, but just our focus was to score a deuce - that's it".

Regulars glided gently along the ice in specially-designed shoes, sweeping in front of the stones, guiding them into strategic positions - curling is often called "chess on ice" - while newcomers slipped around awkwardly on a side lane, with large rubber bands wrapped around their shoes for some semblance of traction. Morris won his in Vancouver in 2010, and Lawes got hers in Sochi in 2014.
