Winnipegger Kaitlyn Lawes records first mixed doubles win at Winter Olympics

Winnipegger Kaitlyn Lawes records first mixed doubles win at Winter Olympics”

The McFarland team of Becca and Matt Hamilton couldn't work their way out of trouble at a critical moment in their second Olympic mixed doubles curling game Thursday.

But in the final end, Lawes' draw to the button was on target to deny the USA comeback try.

Kelly, who helped the Boston Bruins win a Stanley Cup in 2011 and most recently played with the Ottawa Senators, will be tasked with leading Canada in its quest for a third straight Olympic men's hockey title. I missed it the wrong way.

"Obviously wanted to start off with a win, but it's a long week thankfully", said Lawes, a 29-year-old from Winnipeg.

Each team is comprised of one male and one female, with six stones to play instead of the usual eight. Morris was the vice-skip with Kevin Martin's gold-medal team at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, while Lawes was the vice-skip for Jennifer Jones's gold-medal team in 2014 at Sochi, Russia. Really happy being out on the ice and it paid off for us. "It's something I'll never forget". This may be the team's first Olympics, but they have some past experience working together, as they all finished fifth at the 2017 World Women's Championship.

The stands at the Gangneung Curling Centre for Thursday's early draw that started just after 9 a.m. local time filled out soon after the first stones hit the ice, with the South Korean fans cheering their team onto a 9-4 victory over Finland.

Morris said he and Lawes are still figuring out the ice. "It was so awesome to see a lot of Korean fans out there".

Siblinghood triumphed over matrimony as the newest Olympic event debuted on Thursday with American pair Becca and Matt Hamilton beating Anastasia Bryzgalova and Alexander Krushelnitskiy in the mixed doubles curling.

"Unfortunately there's not free bingo spaces here", said Lawes. "Everyone has earned their right and they're the best of the world".
