When does Team USA march during the Opening Ceremony?”

Traditional men's and women's curling has been an Olympic sport since 1998, but mixed doubles - a faster and sometimes seemingly more chaotic version of the sport - is making its debut at the Pyeongchang Games.

Before the opening ceremony for these South Korean Olympics is even held, Canada is sitting at 3-1 and in solid position to be one of four out of eight teams to make the semifinals. In other mixed doubles action, Canada and Russian athletes each picked up two wins on Friday against Finland and China.

The Norwegian's victory featured a highlight-reel shot by Skaslien.

The United States continues its struggles in this event, falling to 1-4 after a two-point loss against the Chinese duo of Rui Wang and Dexin Ba.

Snow warning for across Ireland as temperatures to plummet to -3
Tomorrow will also be very cold with showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow with a slight risk of thundery bursts forecast. Daytime temperatures only 1 to 4 degrees with a wind chill effect from a gusty west to northwest wind.

This member of Team USA has a cartoon doppelganger. China slowly chipped away at that deficit, adding single points in each of the next three ends to secure its first lead of the game. And in this match between representatives of rival nations, there were no signs of awkwardness out on the sheet - other than an incident midway through, when Matt Hamilton got tangled up with his counterpart, Alexander Krushelnitskiy.

Matt, 28, and Becca, 27, will also compete separately for the USA women's and men's teams. After the Russians reestablished themselves, Becca Hamilton cleaned them out again and left the Americans' stones in place, taking a 3-0 advantage in the first end. It kicked off what will be the biggest Winter Olympic Games to date with more than 2,900 athletes from 92 countries competing.

Despite holding a 4-3 lead heading into the final end, or round, of curling's mixed doubles match Friday, the United States lost 9-4 to reigning world champion Switzerland after the Swiss managed something exceedingly unusual in curling: a ideal score known as a six-ender.

Canada is guaranteed the No. 1 seed in the semifinals.

Ties are likely to be further strained by the presence of Kim Yo-jung, the younger sister of the North Korean leader. North Korea reportedly prioritizes height, with only women taller than 165 centimeters able to join the squad.

Morris, 39, won Olympic gold in 2010 playing third for Kevin Martin.

Canada opened with three in the first for an early lead.

Despite a hard defeat for Switzerland, the duo of Jenny Perret and Martin Rios will have an opportunity to bounce back on Saturday against South Korea.

Norway handed Switzerland its first loss during the afternoon session, beating them 6-5.
