Team Canada; Mixed Doubles Curling
Kaitlyn Lawes + John Morris, Gold
🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦Canadian Gold Nuggets🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦
They may not all have gold medals, but the have hearts of gold! And Canada now has 13 medals!!!
- Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris swiped for Gold in the Curling Mixed Doubles, before curlers from Switzerland (silver) and Russia (bronze)
- Kim Boutin won the Bronze Medal in the Women’s 500 in Short Track, behind Italy’s Arianna Fontana (gold) and Netherlands’s Yara van Kerkhof (silver). She came fourth, on the finish line, but after Korea’s Choi Min-jeong (who initially came second) was disqualified, she rightfully took the third place. But in a very ugly, very upsetting and unsporting display, trolls sent her abusive tweets and death threats on social media. It makes me very sad, but mostly very angry; because she should be enjoying this moment. She worked hard for it, she deserved it. This should be one of the best days of her life, and she was in tears on the podium, and they were not all tears of joy, which they should be…
- Alex Gough slid to Bronze in the Women’s Luge, behind Germany’s Natalie Geisenberger (silver) and Dajana Eitberger (silver)
- Ted-Jan Boemen skated to Gold and an Olympic Record of 12:39.77 in the Men’s 10,000 metres before Dutch Jorrit Bergsma and Italian Nicola Tumolero
- Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford definitely were Sudbury, Ontario’s and Winnipeg, Manitoba’s hometown glories as they won Bronze in figure skating, behind Germany’s Aliana Savchenko and Bruno Massot (gold) and China’s Sui Wenjing and Han Cong (silver). Meagan jumping up to hug Aliana who was shaking with tears of joy, was the sweetest.
- And in the Luge Relay, Team Canada won the Silver Medal with Alex Gough, Samuel Edney, Tristan Walker and Justin Snith, between the teams of Germany (Gold) and Austria (Bronze)
Gold medal winners Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris of Canada celebrate during the victory ceremony after Curling Mixed Doubles Gold Medal Game on day four of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Curling Centre on February 13, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea.
What an excellent match. A beautiful game played by Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris against Switzerland to bring Canada the first ever Olympic gold in mixed doubles curling!
This makes Kaitlyn and John the most decorated Canadian curlers of all time.
We’ll see who’s fucking talking when she wins her second Olympic gold tomorrow morning.
Going to the finals!!! Let’s get the gold!!!
