The 2022 Winter Olympics are underway and mixed doubles curling is approaching the medal rounds. Group play got underway on Wednesday, February 2 and wraps up Monday morning in Beijing. The semifinals are scheduled for 8:05 p.m. Beijing time on Monday evening, which is 7:05 a.m. ET in the US. The gold and bronze medal games are scheduled for Tuesday.
Coming out of Sunday’s slate, three of the four semifinal spots are secured. Italy was the first to secure a spot through dominant play to date. Stefania Constantini and Amos Mosaner have not been beaten thus far, running off eight straight wins in the tournament. On Sunday, they were joined by Great Britain and Norway, who are both 5-3. Canada is also 5-3, but needs a win on Monday against Italy to advance. If they lose, they drop into a tie with 5-4 Sweden and since Sweden beat them head-to-head, the Swedes would advance with a Canadian loss.
UPDATE: Canada lost to Italy, which dropped them to 5-4 and a tie with Sweden. Sweden won the head-to-head match, which gives them the tiebreaker.
