Gough secured Canada's first Olympic medal in luge, finishing third in the women's singles final.

The guard stone is positioned to the side of the sheet so it protects the in-house stone.
"One of our best assets of the week was our power-play defence", said Morris. "The power play is what makes this game so interesting". She packs a big punch and she makes a lot of clutch shots.
