Yet at that moment, it was hard to believe how close his dream in these Games had come to crumbling apart. “Im so proud I was able to do something similar”. But its men’s team settled for silver with a stunning upset by the US men on Saturday night.
John Shuster, along with teammates Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner, and alternate Joe Polo then went on to win five consecutive matches while their home country was asleep on Saturday.
Shuster and co. pulled a huge comeback victory over Swedish skip Niklas Edin’s club at the Gangneung Curling Centre.
“During the entire end, I felt it building”, Shuster said.
The win was the start of something special in the PyeongChang Games, and also the start of Shuster’s redemption story after his disappointing finishes in the 2010 and 2014 Olympics.

“I was happy to get a chance to make that last one for these guys for all the shots they made throughout the course of these games”.
But when the Americans looked at the medals draped around their necks, there was a problem: They had been given the ones engraved for the women’s winners.
