What is mixed doubles curling?

11 February 2018, 01:37 | Pamela Mathis

As they attempted to sweep stones along the outer ring, Hamilton fell to the ice and Krushelnitskiy quickly gestured an apology.

"When we were teenagers, obviously being so close in age and being angsty kids, we kind of butted heads as youth", Matt said.

While mixed doubles has been popular at curling clubs around the world for quite some time, you may not have heard of this type of curling before because this is the first time it will be played in the Winter Games. It is round-robin tournament played by teams of two - one man and one woman.

Traditional men's and women's curling has been an Olympic sport since 1998, but mixed doubles - a faster and sometimes seemingly more chaotic version of the sport - is making its debut at the Pyeongchang Games. "I was forced to go watch him in the championship final down at the curling club and after the final, his coach pulled me out on the ice and I've never looked back since".

Each team throws five stones per end, with the player delivering the team's first stone of the end also delivering the team's final stone of the end.

Both Ottawa's Morris and Winnipeg's Lawes are Olympic gold medallists in curling but they had little experience playing mixed doubles together prior to winning January's trials.

Morris won Olympic gold in 2010 playing third for Kevin Martin, while Lawes topped the podium in 2014 as vice for Jennifer Jones.

The two were Canada's first competitors at the Games, which officially open Friday. "So 90 percent of the time I feel like I'm the alpha but I think deep down she really knows she".

"We said 'Hey, if something happened, we're sorry'". The brother and sister team started to go viral after one user on Twitter pointed out Hamilton's resemblance to Mario from the "Super Mario" video game.

"It was fantastic to hear the roars from the Korean fans". Teams will play at 7:05 p.m. and 6:05 a.m. EST for four days until the bronze medal match at 7:05 p.m. on February 12. They're now ranked No. 1 in the world. "So fix that and we are going to be a force".
