Meet The Curling Siblings Who Hope Their Relationship On And Off The Ice Propels Them To Olympic Gold

"Right now, we are letting the other teams off the hook".

"We're excited about the Olympics, and so is our club", Franklin said.

Although the US curling team is only ranked eighth in the world, Matt Hamilton believes he and his sis have a good chance in their opening match on Thursday against fourth-ranked Russian Federation.

The Hamiltons defeated the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation in their opening match but have since succumbed to difficulties gauging ice speed.

One of the most surprisingly popular sports held during the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea is curling.

Wednesday's games came down to tight finishes.

"They've changed the process and with the new process you pretty much need a masters degree in calculus to figure out some of these totals", Morris said. "We'll come back stronger".

Team USA continued to add to their lead in the fifth by scoring two after Aleksandr Krushelnitckii burned a rock, continuing the woes of Team OAR and forcing them to use the power play in the sixth end. The Canadian women's team also has medaled in five straight Olympics, including gold in 2014. After facing top ranked Canada and defending World Champions Switzerland in Games 2 and 3, the road didn't get easier for the Hamilton siblings as they were tasked with taking on a China team that was third at the 2017 World Championships, and second in 2016. Download the Team USA app today. Each team will play with six stones instead of the traditional eight and have eight ends instead of the regular ten. A "perfect game" in curling would mean all eight of your stones wound up closer to the button than your opponent's - giving you an 8-0 score for that end.

Canada is on a roll, closing in on semifinal berth Canada is closing in on a berth in the mixed doubles curling semifinals but nothing is guaranteed yet. They defeated the two other teams in the tournament, Sweden and France, to win the title. "I love the fast pace of it, I love the athleticism of it".

"I love seeing fans in the stands", said Becca.

The only good news from Thursday for the Hamiltons was the amount of twitter buzz Matt got for looking like a few famous characters.

"I don't think many people do", Becca said. The men's and women's teams each include four curlers and an alternate.

"Go out and try it and get back to me", said Becca.
