Curling USA: Skip Shuster opens way to US win

25 February 2018

Entering the tournament, Canada had reached the gold medal match at five straight Olympics, winning the past three.

An hour before the puck drops, Team USA hockey fans were in pregame mode. Edin, on the other hand, started fantastic, shooting 91 percent in the first three ends, but finished with just a 75 percent shot success rate. Both Shuster and Polo were on that team.

Sweden picked up two more in the ninth but couldn't dig itself out of the hole.

A big throw from Hamilton, who always has a lime green cap hanging out of his back pocket for luck, for a double takeout triggered cries of "U-S-A, U-S-A", but the Swedes nicked the seventh end to draw back level at 5-5. You've got to bleed points out of them. That was until "Big Shot John" stepped up and knocked out stones to give the U.S. two points of their own.

It would take a ideal shot, and Shuster was up to the task. The Canadians had to settle for one point, bringing the score to 4-3.

Sweden looked rattled at times, and missed several big shots as the tension of the game seemed to get to the young players.

They have been on a tear since dropping their first game of the Olympics to Slovakia, outscoring their next four opponents 21-3. USA Curling started a high-performance program and he wasn't allowed to participate.

Of course, in the present, the moment is more complex. "To have two medals at the Olympics - that's insane", Shiffrin said. Sixth after the downhill, Shiffrin has it advantage of the sleeve in his discipline of choice to install in the head.

When Sweden finally conceded the game in 10th end, the jam-packed Curling Club crowd went wild.

And they did so while engaging new curling fans, with Mr. T giving a pregame pep talk over the phone and scores of celebrities and followers tweeting support and congratulations. He played lead for Pete Fenson's rink when that team won the bronze at the Turin Games.

The contest got off to a tactical start with the Swedes blanking the first then scoring a pair in the second only to have the USA hit right back with a two on another brilliant last-rock shot from Shuster. All the United States of America needed to do is not allow Sweden to score three points to tie it and the gold medal was theirs. The Americans started out round robin play 2-4, and needed to be ideal through their final three games just to make it to the knockout round. The remarkable journey had come to fruition for the USA. They showed the exact spirit of the Olympics, and that's why events like curling can take off.
