US Men's Curling upsets Sweden to take gold

I shouldn't have removed my silver medal: Canadian hockey star

Canadian women's hockey player apologizes for taking off silver medal

Olympics officials gave the US curlers the wrong gold medals Saturday following their 10-7 victory over Sweden in the gold-medal match, according to USA TODAY.

The United States won a huge gold medal in curling early Saturday morning, and as a result, the Americans have now earned the fourth-most gold medals in PyeongChang.

Shuster's journey of Olympic bronze in 2006, followed by failure in 2010 and 2014 and eventual removal from the USA team, was one of high emotion. It was the first - and, before Sunday - the only Olympic medal an American curling team has ever won.

"His story is my story", Shuster said.

Yeah, he was part of that bronze medal-winning squad in Turin, but he'd been dealt much more heartache by the Winter Games. And no one on the curling team is an animated character.

Shuster had executed a ideal shot: a blend of cool-handed finesse and foolproof strategy. Clearly, the Swedes, with Niklas Edin as skip, had their eyes set on gold this time.

After a year off from playing skip, Shuster was back calling shots the next year.

And in the eighth, Shuster had the last word. "They had nothing to lose and we had everything to lose", he said. (Definition: "A verb meaning to fail to meet expectations, particularly at a moment critical for success or even slightly respectable results", as in "Man, he really shustered that!") Then, in the summer of 2014, Shuster was cut from USA Curlings high-performance program.

"They don't call you "rejects" any more after the three world championship appearances", George said. But today, every time he played a precise takeout or gentle draw, Shuster would answer on the following end.

(L-R) John Landsteiner, John Shuster and Matt Hamilton compete in the men's curling semi-final match against Canada at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 22, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea.

Shuster brushed it off: "A gold medal in curling is a gold medal in curling". They quickly got the right ones.
