Canada is flexing its mixed doubles muscle early in Beijing.

BEIJING – Canada is flexing its mixed doubles muscle early after three consecutive victories at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

As of Friday (Feb. 4) at 10:30 a.m., the curling duo of Canmore's John Morris and Beaumont's Rachel Homan is tied in second (3-1) with Great Britain and Sweden in the round robin tournament. At 4-0, Italy is the only undefeated team.

"Every game out there was tough, but that’s what mixed doubles is all about," said Canmore's Morris in a blog post on Curling Canada. "It’s going to be a grind, but we’re always ready to grind it out when we have that Maple Leaf on our backs."
