Winter Olympics: Great Britain into women's curling semi-finals after beating Canada

Brady Leman took home a gold to give Canada its first Olympic medal in men's ski cross. The result was quite the opposite for the American women. They need to win their final game on Wednesday - the men play Great Britain (11:05 p.m. Tuesday Madison time) and the women play Sweden (5:05 a.m. Madison time) - to have a chance to make it into a tiebreaker for the final semifinal spot.

The U.S. men's curling team defeated Canada in a 5-3 victory on Thursday, February 22, to advance to its first-ever gold medal game.

Kevin Koe, who twice skipped Canada to world championships, had his team on the scoreboard first and they led twice but could not put away a determined Team USA who stole a pair in the eighth end to go up 4-2 and take control.

The Americans then stole two when Koe hit the guard with his first rock before his draw fell way short, allowing the Americans to take a 4-2 lead.

The British conceded after the USA stole four points in the eighth end.

"We've still got a chance of making the Olympic semi-finals, so it's exactly the same situation as today".

"That Russian team had gone a number of years without being beaten", American skip John Shuster said.

The U.S. entered the game as the least-accurate shooting team in the tournament, and Shuster's 73 percent shooting was last among the Olympic skips.

The ninth end started well for the U.S.as Landsteiner's successful tick helped set the table for Shuster to convert a raise for two points.

Lawrence hits back at 'ridiculous' gender imbalance photo claims
Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the issue that probably should have never been an issue to begin with, but here we are. Lawrence bit back on Wednesday, calling the chatter over her dress "sexist".

"We had our fate in our hands and didn't quite finish it out and execute", Roth said.

"Coming back in the ninth end, we were trying to force and we never made enough shots".

Apparently you can. It's one of the reasons people sometimes hold meetings.

Four nights after 2-4, USA curler John Landsteiner spoke of how they wanted to "beat the system at the time" they were out of the system, and how "then the system took us in, and they've given us every opportunity that we could ever imagine to succeed". "We handled the pressure like it was nothing and came out swinging against nearly every team".

"To battle back from that and stay strong and confident in myself is huge, and I'm just so proud right now".

"I thought we deserved to be in the play-offs". We hung in there.

The U.S. team with Madison-born athlete Joanne Firesteel Reid finished 15th in the mixed relay.

The three-person American team, also including Jonathan Garcia, finished in 3:50.77, more than 8 seconds behind Canada.
