During Wednesday night's opener of the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Hamilton's got their revenge in a big way, defeating Team OAR 9-3 in seven ends.

"It's feeling good but we know we are in for some really tough games".

Morris and Lawes have won five straight after opening competition with a loss to Norway.

It was the first time the Olympics had featured mixed doubles, a form of play that's been part of the world championships since 2008.

They shared their Olympic debuts not only with each other, but also with their event itself as these are the first Games to include mixed doubles. Team OAR could end up in any of the other 2-4 seeds based on Saturday night's games. "Walking in the opening ceremony would be fantastic but at the end of the day, you're standing on your feet for a long time so I don't think it's conducive to performance, especially having a game so early in the morning (Saturday)". And says that means that I'll watch it now but any other time of the year on ain't no way am which and people curling.

But in the end, Norway's hammer shot just barely reached more in the button than the closest Finnish rock beside it, giving Norway the win and propelling them to the top of the standings.

"It was a really awesome atmosphere", said Morris. I missed it the wrong way. "We'll enjoy it from Canada House and who knows, maybe they'll have an extra beer I can sip on while I'm watching it".

"We decided that we should try out for it because it is another opportunity in the Olympics", he said, noting the added advantage of competing with his sibling.

Lawes said the rest is necessary.

"I call most of the shots, but Becca just lets me do that because most of the time we agree", he explained. One stone per team is pre-positioned before the start of play in each end.

The men's team, lead by Wisconsinite John Schuster, finished 2-7, and the women's team was worse, going 1-8.

As thirds, they both regularly sweep a lot of rocks and collaborate on game-calling with their skips. GE's. On device a big curling fans so we'll talk more about that coming up here on WW out of the presence as well I think I'm curling right now is one of them forty yes fitness that at.
