While both Hamiltons have been curling for more than a decade, they didn't start playing together until about three years ago when it was announced mixed doubles would be coming to the Olympics.

"We wanted to win the game and that's it", he said.

"We were throwing things heavy", Becca Hamilton said. Only the top four teams qualify for the semifinals. The Canadians lost 9-6 to Norway in this non-single-elimination setup. "Walking in the opening ceremony would be wonderful but at the end of the day, you're standing on your feet for a long time so I don't think it's conducive to performance, especially having a game so early in the morning (Saturday)".

The Wisconsin mixed doubles curling team of Matt and Becca Hamilton dropped its second straight match on Thursday night, falling to Switzerland 9-4 and opening the 2018 Winter Olympics on a sour note for the U.S. National Team.

China stole points in three ends in the game.

"We just need to continue to grow and get more comfortable with the ice, play up little by little, and just try and hope we get enough wins in the round robin to qualify for the playoff".

"I was using him for his vehicle, so I'd get a ride down to the curling club", she said. "I was making jokes about it during the last end, but just our focus was to score a deuce - that's it". The two shook hands, and Hamilton headed back to the other end with a smile on his face. "So 90 percent of the time I feel like I'm the alpha but I think deep down she really knows she".

Days before Olympics faceoff, USA vows new North Korea sanctions
Mr Moon's spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said the North Korean delegates will attend the opening ceremony of the Games on Friday evening. But critics say South Korea is playing into the hands of North Korea as it tries to use the Olympics to poke holes in sanctions.

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

Korea got one back with a power-play in the sixth to make it 5-3, but some good shooting from Lawes in the following frame gave Canada a commanding 7-3 lead.

Outside of the US matches, Switzerland topped China and Finland to start round robin play 2-0.

"It certainly doesn't hurt that they are such experienced thirds", Canadian coach Jeff Stoughton said.
