American men beat Sweden for curling gold at Olympics

The Swedes beat Switzerland 9-3 in the other semifinal.

Curling is also a relatively new sport for the Olympics, so the country's success in it could prove beneficial to the sport's growth nationally. That will change on Saturday.

South Korea got a point back thanks to a takeout with its final stone of the sixth end. Shuster's raise in the third end tied the game at 1-1.

Asked about how he had transformed his "team of rejects", Shuster replied to grins all round: "You haven't said that right, we weren't a team of rejects, just Team Reject!"

With the Americans' run, suddenly curling is in the limelight again.

Shuster delivered a hammer (last throw) blow that lifted the Americans five points clear 10-5.

Ivanka Trump was in attendance to witness the silver medal performance (she was also at the curling match).

The Americans played defense in the ninth end to avoid giving up a big score.

"In the eighth end we don't exactly get the rocks where we wanted them and they put a lot of rocks in the house and we were forced to go all in", explained Edin. Canada played even more defensively, throwing up several guards to protect their two rocks on the side of the 12-foot area.

Sweden reportedly prepared for the curling event by playing hours of billiards, learning from the pool table how the balls react to particular shots. "It was an awesome game to play", she said. "That feeling inside me right there was just something of simplicity".

The team's final shot hit the five-spot of the bullseye and knocked two of Canada's curling stones out of the scoring zone to secure the gold.

If you are planning on watching the events as they are broadcast stateside, you may want to avoid the following. Jones says the gold medal inspired her to make the trip, "It was awesome, I'm so happy and so proud of our country for getting to that position and getting us the gold and it's great".

Even gold medalist can't get an upgrade home.

In their latest example of wizardry foresight, The Simpsons managed to predict the underdog win of the U.S. men's curling team, who managed to pull off an upset against the favoured Swedish team. "Who is going to give up on hope?" "This is the most fun game I ever played".

The final piece of Shuster's team was Tyler George, a former skipper and longtime rival of Shuster.
