Although he's been forced to be patient with his recovery, McMorris is excited to be ready to contend for a gold medal, as he told Rachel Axon of USA Today. "It's been a bit of a hard thing to deal with every morning as a 24-year-old feeling pretty beat up, but it's all worth it".

"I just look for different lines". His third run was ideal, though, and judges gave him an 87.15, good for first place ahead of Canada's Mark McMorris.

Canada and China were the best performed in the mixed doubles curling winning both of their matches with the round robin phase wrapping up tomorrow. They were the heavy favorites going into the event, so it wasn't surprising.
