ANOTHER WIN - Mixed doubles curlers Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris clinched first in round-robin play after defeating South Korea's Hyeji Jang and Kijeong Lee 8-3. The Canadians finished the round robin at 6-1 and had already qualified for the semifinals.
He suffered numerous injuries including breaks to his jaw and left arm, a ruptured spleen, a stable pelvic fracture, and a collapsed left lung in that accident making many wonder if he would be able to compete in Pyongchang. McMorris fell in his final trip down the course. "But that's where I told myself that I've been snowboarding since I was nine years old and that it was already a victory that I was here at the Olympic Games".
What followed was an arduous recovery process, including 10 days in the hospital, a liquid diet that lasted six weeks and hours of daily physical therapy. McMorris showed he could do it by winning a World Cup just eight months after the crash.
McMorris, who won bronze four years ago at the Sochi Games when slopestyle made its Olympic debut, hit a tree off a jump during a trip to the backcountry with some friends, including his brother Craig. The Canadians earned their spot in the semis with dominating wins over Switzerland and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.
