Congrats to Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris!!

Canada's Lawes, Morris win mixed doubles curling gold

Winnipeggers are Canada’s first 2-time Olympic curling champs

Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris won the first-ever Winter Games gold medal in mixed doubles curling on Tuesday, defeating the reigning world champions from Switzerland 10-3 at the Gangneung Curling Centre in South Korea.

"Wow, this is unbelievable. A dream come true," a beaming Lawes told CBC Sports.

"This is for everyone back home [in Canada] that's always been supportive. It just feels so great," Morris added after securing Canada's third gold medal of the Games and eighth overall. "We [Canada] are having such a great Games, and to give us a boost like this with another gold, it just feels awesome to be a part of that team."

I'm a curler, myself, though I've never played mixed doubles. It's a whole different game! Just a shockingly different strategy and completely different mindset. Big ups to both of them. I know Kaitlyn struggled in the first half of the semifinal, but she really pulled it out and she and John just destroyed that gold medal game. Amazing!
