John Shuster Team USA Curling Upset Canada And Have A Chance At Gold
Team USA Curling pulled off the second upset of Canada after the Women's Hockey team won last night. Shooting 90% and stealing 2 in the 8th end, John was on fire as the USA will move on to the Gold medal round vs Sweden.
Canada has won the Gold the last 3 Olympic games and the USA has only won a bronze ever. So, officially this is the highest finish for a US curling team ever. Playing the most patient curling this team has ever played they capitalized on a throwing error by Canada to steal.
Then it was just up to Team USA not to blow a throw. Canada went for a clever set up in end 10 to try to set up a steal, but USA had the hammer, (which means the last shot) and John Shuster had to make the last shot perfectly, and that is exactly what he did.
Team USA is representing the Duluth Curling Club. This makes the second time a Duluthian has had a staring role in the Olympics. After Maddie Rooney playing goalie for the Gold Medal US women's hockey team.
