Lawes, Morris sweep to gold

Team Jennifer Jones Winnipeg

The proceedings start with the bronze medal match Monday evening in America, 6 p.m. ET, between Norway and Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation. With a skilled throw from Kaitlyn Lawes to finish off the end, Canada scored 4.

"It feels fantastic. It's an unbelievable feeling winning the gold medal", said Morris.

Morris and Lawes now have two Olympic gold medals under their belts. The pair put an emphatic claim on the gold medal Tuesday night with a 10-3 win over Jenny Perret and Martin Rios of Switzerland.

Lawes was third for the Jennifer Jones team that won women's team gold in 2014. 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. The 39-year-old Morris of Ottawa was an Olympic champion at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics playing third for the now-retired Kevin Martin, who told CBC Sports's Devin Heroux on Monday that "you won't meet a better big-game player than John Morris".

Canada came a long way since the announcement three years ago that mixed doubles curling would be an Olympic sport.

In the semi-final game between Canada and Norway, John Morris was fabulous in the first half of the game, while Kaitlyn Lawes struggled. A resilient tandem, they made mistakes in South Korea and learned from them, outscoring their opponents 64-24.

In a game CBC/TSN broadcaster and Olympic silver medallist Mike Harris called, "a clinic in mixed doubles curling", Lawes and Morris kept pressure on the Swiss, forcing Perrett to draw for one in the fourth end for a 6-3 score.

Added Morris: "I didn't have a lot of doubt that we would have a great dynamic".

He allegedly boasted he had connections with the Secret Service that could take care of his problems. Allegations first surfaced in October after an investigative report by the New York Times.

"It's surreal, to be honest", said Lawes afterwards.

Lawes was forced to take a technical timeout before her final shot in the third end as there appeared to be a problem with the handle on her rock. "Same thing here. We lost our first game and it felt similar to those trials where we didn't feel we were playing that poorly, we just had to find a way to improve a couple of percentage points each game".

"It was huge", said Lawes of limiting the damage. "The power play is a chance to get multiple points and it really favours the team with the hammer".

The Swiss were setting up for a multi-point end in the sixth, but the Canadians played defence and left Perret with a tough hit to score points.

White House grappling with fallout from aide's resignation
It's a White House where distinguishing between right and wrong is prohibited. The infighting unfolded amid signs of a brewing shake-up in the West Wing.

The Canadians were outshooting the Swiss 92 per cent to 63 after five ends and led 8-3. "If that lets other people try the sport of curling for the first time, I think that's wonderful".
