For the first time ever Canada's men's curling team will finish off the podium

For the first time in history, Canada will finish off the podium in both men’s and women’s curling.

Canada’s last game in men’s curling saw the bronze medal going to the hands of Switzerland, as they overtook Canada 7-5.

Canada dealt with a slow start and struggled early on in the match. With a few too many misses and a lack of execution, Switzerland was quick to punish Canada for their mistakes.

It’s a bittersweet and surprising result. Canada just reached a record in medal tally, but did so while missing gold in competitions which they were heavy favourites.

John Morris and Katelyn Laws, Canada’s mixed doubles team, are the only Canadian curling team which won gold during Pyeongchang.

If nothing else, Canada still has Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
