Trailing 6-5 and down to last rock with a spot in the final on the line, Aleksandr Krushelnitckiy looked on in dismay as his shot coasted through the house allowing the Swiss to steal a point and seal a dramatic 7-5 win. "It's an fantastic feeling winning the gold medal".
" This is for everyone back home [in Canada] that's always been supportive".
The Canadian pair defeated Switzerland's Jenny Perret and Martin Rios 10-3 in an exciting game, but one where the Canadians took an early advantage.
Minnie Driver steps down as global ambassador of Oxfam

Canada actually lost its first match of the tournament, to Norway, before rolling to six straight wins in pool play. It just feels awesome to be part of this team. The 39-year-old Morris of Ottawa was an Olympic champion at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics playing third for the now-retired Kevin Martin, who told CBC Sports's Devin Heroux on Monday that "you won't meet a better big-game player than John Morris". The Lawes-Morris pair finished with eight consecutive victories at Pyeongchang, despite being teamed up only two months ago and practicing less than an hour before the Olympic trials. Both Lawes and Morris were born in Winnipeg.
In a game CBC/TSN broadcaster and Olympic silver medallist Mike Harris called, "a clinic in mixed doubles curling", Lawes and Morris kept pressure on the Swiss, forcing Perrett to draw for one in the fourth end for a 6-3 score. A resilient tandem, they made mistakes in South Korea and learned from them, outscoring their opponents 64-24. No matter what was going to happen out there, we were just so proud of what we've been able to accomplish.
"It sounds surreal and I don't know if that's ever going to sink in", said Lawes, a 29-year-old from Winnipeg.
Lawes was forced to take a technical timeout before her final shot in the third end as there appeared to be a problem with the handle on her rock. We had to learn as quickly as possible how to play well together and overcome adversity.

Switzerland came back with two points of their own in the second to tie things up.
Canada edged ahead with an early four-pointer before steadily growing their lead through some tactical stones, although a nervous performance from Switzerland's Rios helped their cause.
It was a win for Canada and even a bigger win for mixed doubles curling. "If that lets other people try the sport of curling for the first time, I think that's wonderful".
