'Team Reject' gave US historic medal in curling

'Team Reject' gave US historic medal in curling

"But then days like this happen". The hope is they'll have many more teams to train in four years.

The team's final shot hit the five-spot of the bullseye and knocked two of Canada's curling stones out of the scoring zone to secure the gold.

They can now add another feather to their cap, having predicted eight years ago that the United States would beat Sweden in the Winter Olympics curling final.

He rebounded by forming "Team Rejects" with Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo - a team that came out of no where to claim Olympic gold.

Crowley said one of the biggest challenges of playing in the gold medal game against Team Canada is separating the off-the-ice friendships and on-the-ice rivalry.

South Korea, competing in its first ever gold-medal match at the Olympics, struggled to find a breakthrough against the powerhouse Swedish team.

They saw Shuster convert a double-takeout for a five-ender in the eighth - an exceedingly rare score that made it 10-5 and essentially clinched the win.

South Korea's dream run to the women's final, a spectacularly-achieved first gold for the United States, and a third triumph in four Games for Sweden's women were the headline stories of the 18-day curling competition at the Winter Olympics.

The Korean curling team turned into viral sensations known as the "garlic girls" due to the primary product of their hometown. Diggins later ended her second Olympic Games with another dream - carrying the American flag into the Closing Ceremony .

"Hi, there. Congratulations, gold medal champions!"

Shuster and his American teammates started 2-4 and won their last five games, twice beating Canada and once beating world No. 1 Niklas Edin of Sweden.

After the USA scored their five a reeling Sweden chipped two off the deficit in the ninth but there was too much damage to fix and the Swedes finally conceded.

Just about every medalist from the 2018 Olympic Games performed during the figure skating exhibition gala, an un-scored event in which skaters can just have fun. Shuster was a part of the other one too, helping the Americans win a bronze medal at the 2006 Turin Games.

The curlers' somber expressions throughout most of the news conference gave the impression the silver medals hung heavy around their necks.

The 2018 Winter Olympics come to an end on Sunday with the closing ceremony. "I'm so proud of my girls".

Six days ago the rink led by Shuster, who helmed the USA sides that finished last and second from last at the previous two Olympics, appeared bound for another early exit when the Americans lost four of their first six matches in the round-robin stage.
