Winter Olympics 2018: Delta declined gold-winning USA curling team's upgrade request

PYEONGCHANG Feb. 23 2018- Canada's Kevin Koe competes during bronze medal game of men's curling against Switzerland at 2018 Pyeong Chang Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Curling Centre Gangneung

Marge was the star of the team, almost having to forfeit the match due to a right shoulder injury - but she reveals that she's actually left-handed and returns just in time to beat Sweden in the gold medal match as a lefty.

Shuster sealed a 10-7 win over Sweden for gold with an epic mic drop - a double takeout shot that scored five points in the eighth end. The team is named for John Shuster, the skip on the team.

Throughout the game, the crowd could be heard repeatedly chanted "USA!" as the team - which included Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner - fought to take out the dominating Swedish team. Shuster broke a 5-5 tie with a stunning five-point throw on his final stone of the end.

"These are the people that were around for all this work that this team put in", said Shuster.

The United States' performance was highlighted by snowboarder Shaun White's gold medal run in the men's halfpipe.

But before all this, the actress had already displayed her superstardom in South cinema starring in hits galore, right from K. She expressed her admiration for Mozart of Madras A R Rahman besides sharing her views on capital punishment for rapists.

But Shuster, American curling's only four-time Olympian, guided his team to three straight victories to advance to the playoffs and then a semifinal win over three-time defending gold medalist Canada.

Shuster then pulled off his master throw to secure the U.S. a stunning five-pointer to go 10-5 up and earn the USA a famous success. Sure, the team earned the bronze medal in 2006, but the US men finished dead last out of 10 teams in Vancouver back in 2010 and ninth out of 10 teams in Sochi back in 2014.

His throw was flawless, knocking out Sweden's stone and giving the astounding five points.

"The club members decided that at 1:30 in the morning, we were all just going to come here and watch it together because we thought it was history in the making", said Dorothy Roach, Rochester Curling Club member.

Curling teams participating this year include the U.S., Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Scotland, Norway, Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Russia and Switzerland. While they welcomed the team aboard, they were going to have sit in coach.

Shuster recalled how hard-luck speed skater Dan Jansen of Wisconsin struggled through three Olympics although favored in many of his races. "It was just heartfelt, we were just screaming, cheering them on and loving it". "I can't tell you how much that fueled us".

One Twitter user joked about the Olympic tradition of biting into gold medals, to ensure their quality. Thanks to this, the USA took home their first gold medal in the sport.

Team USA was also represented this year by some bright young stars in the action sports world, including 17-year-old snowboarders Red Gerard and Chloe Kim, who both won gold in their respective events.

"I've really enjoyed watching the men's luge", Greenleaf said.
