Recommended Posts

Nate River    80

Vancouver 2010 silver medalist and TSN comentator Cheryl Bernard has surprisingly been named as Team Canada’s alternate. Despite having retired four years ago. And despite Team Homan having a long time alternate that they are leaving at home.

Olympic Winter Games 2018 teams’ curling schedule published

The PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee Olympic Winter Games recently published the women’s and men’s curling teams' schedule for the upcoming Games in February 2018.

 

The women’s and men’s teams’ competition will run from Wednesday 14 February until Sunday 25 February and comes after the newly introduced mixed doubles tournament, which begins on 8 February

 

Ten teams will compete in the women’s and men’s events. They are:

 

Women: Canada, China, Denmark, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Olympic Athletes from Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and United States

 

Men: Canada, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and United States

 

The tournament format will be a round-robin – three draws per day – followed by a session of tie-breakers if required, then semi-finals and finals. The round-robin will be played between 14 and 21 February. The tie-breakers will follow at 09:05 on Thursday 22 February. Also, that day will be the men’s semi-finals at 20:04.

 

On Friday 23 February, the men’s bronze medal game is at 15:35 and the women’s semi-finals are at 20:04. Saturday 24 February sees the men’s gold medal game take place at 15:35, followed by the women’s bronze medal game at 20:04.

 

The Olympic curling concludes on Sunday 25 February at 09:05 with the women’s gold medal final. This is the first time the women’s final has come last at the Games, since its debut in Nagano, Japan, in 1998.

At the end of the round-robin the teams will be ranked one to ten, with the first ranked team playing the fourth ranked team (1v4) and the second ranked team playing the third ranked team in the semi-finals (2v3).

 

The men’s defending champion nation, Canada will open their round-robin campaign in the first session of play on Wednesday 14 February against Italy, who recently qualified out of the Olympic Qualification Event in Pilsen, Czech Republic.

Also, in that session, the hosts Korea will meet United States.

 

Canada’s women’s team – again the defending champion nation and the current world champions – open their campaign at 09:05 on Thursday 15 February against the hosts Korea.

Canada? 0-2 after two rounds? Of course they still have chance for win against Sweden, but this is not good.
