South Korean Men's Curling Team Wins Against Italy

Nobody expected us to do well, and then we're giving these teams a run for their money.

"We've been a bit nervous today", said Johansson, his bristly moustache quivering in the chill night air.

"All the sacrifices our players and team have been making, it was worth it", Murray told reporters. It's unfortunate we haven't been able to put all that together until now.

Canada's Tessa Virtue and Canada's Scott Moir compete in the ice dance free dance of the figure skating event during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung on February 20, 2018. Not one but two ice dancers have popped out of their costumes in Pyeongchang, and the event isn't over yet.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Women's Hockey team seeks to end Canada's 16-year claim of the Olympic gold medal when they face each other for the championship on Thursday (Wednesday 11:10 p.m. EST on NBC Sports Network).

I really should have been a figure skater.

The Americans have won the past four world titles, three of them since Canada took a fourth consecutive Olympic crown.

The U.S. men's curling team is still hanging on after a winning shot from Minnesota native John Shuster, who clinched the win for Team USA against Canada. Neither team led by more than two points at any time in the 10 ends, and it all came down to a draw for US skip Nina Roth.

Hockey with its brightest stars was a hit with players and fans in Nagano, Japan in 1998, Salt Lake City in 2002, Turin, Italy in 2006, Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014.

Not until the eighth day of competition did ticket sales finally reach 1 million, a milestone because local organizers need the revenue to cover their billions in costs. Poland took the bronze with 1,072.4 points. Now, team U.S. works to obtaining gold medals in ice hockey. Canadian Samuel Girard, the 1,000-meter victor, and 1,000-meter bronze medalist Seo Yira of South Korea also safely advanced. The women's freeski halfpipe final will also conclude on Monday, with Canada's Cassie Sharpe in the lead at the time of writing. The silver went to France's Marie Martinod, and the bronze went to the United States' Brita Sigourney.

South Korea booked a ticket to the semifinals with six wins and one loss in the round-robin.

Anchor: The unified Korean women's ice hockey team suffered another heavy defeat in its final match at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Tuesday.

Speed skater Cha Min-kyu reacts after fishing his 500-m race in Gangeung, Gangwon Province on Monday.

Cha came in at 34.42 seconds - 0.01 second behind the Norwegian - at Gangneung Oval.

China finished second, but was penalized by the referees.

Coming out against Sweden Tuesday, a team that beat them 8-0 earlier, Korea "really had something to prove", Griffin said.

Overall, we can't conclude too much about Olympic ratings until the Games are complete, but one trick for boosting future viewership seems pretty foolproof: beg the National Hockey League to come back.

The team now sits at 3-4, which puts them in seventh place of the round-robin standings.
