Team USA won its first ever Olympic gold medal in curling on Feb. 24, beating Sweden 10-7.
John Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner defeated the World No.1 ranked Swedes thanks to a perfect throw in the eighth end that doubled the U.S. score and gave them a 10-5 lead with just two ends to play.
"Tell you what it was a lot of fun," captain Shuster said after the game. "And that's where the week changed for us and changed for me was to allow myself to go out there and enjoy it and let the work show through. Holy cow."

"A lot of us have wanted this since we saw the 1998 team win 20 years ago. To have this experience together, to represent our country is the greatest honor in the world. It’s one of the greatest days of all of our lives," said captain Meghan Duggan.

Shiffrin, the reigning World Cup overall champion and the first woman to win three straight world slalom titles in 78 years, fell to her knees in joyful tears after her 2:20.02 second run in the giant slalom.
And about ABFTTB, that lettering on her helmet? It stands for "Always Be Faster Than The Boys."
White — universally known as "The Flying Tomato" for the flowing mane of red hair he sported for most of his career — became the first man to win three snowboarding gold medals when he won the halfpipe on Feb. 14 (Feb. 13 ET).
The victory wasn't a milestone for White alone — it was also the 100th gold medal for the United States in Winter Olympics history.
White has been the face and dominant competitor in men's snowboarding for more than a decade, having also won gold in 2006 and 2010. But he fell short in 2014 in Sochi, Russia, a failure he called "the worst thing I could have imagined."
This time, he came in to the games in peak form, having been awarded a perfect score of 100 at the U.S. Grand Prix in January. He came close to repeating the feat on the biggest stage of them all — scoring 97.75 on his third run to clinch the gold over Ayumu Hirano of Japan.
Kim landed two rare 1080s — three full rotations — in adding the gold medal to her multiple X Games gold medals, her multiple World Snowboard Tour titles and her dual golds in halfpipe and slopestyle at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics.
For Kim, where she did it was extra special — her parents are South Korean immigrants.
"Being able to do it here, in their home country, is amazing," she said.
Anderson led the United States to its second gold medal of the 2018 Winter Olympics after she cruised to a score of 83.00 in her first run in the women's snowboard slopestyle on Sunday, repeating a feat that earned her gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Gerard, 17, who was the only U.S. competitor to reach the final, managed to claw his way from last place heading into his third and final run on the slope. He earned a score of 87.16 from the judges, just enough to beat out silver medalist Max Parrot of Canada.
Gerard didn't even have the Olympics in mind a year ago.
"I've never really found myself thinking about" the Olympics, Gerard said when asked about the games last year. "I feel like there's just always so much stuff going around that I want to pay attention to. And [the Olympics] are just far ahead, so whatever."
