Watch Team USA’s Epic Stunt to End Game 1 in Biting Victory – NBC Chicago

It was anyone’s game until the very last moment, but Team USA Shuster got their 2022 Winter Olympics off to a great start against the Russian Olympic Committee.

It took extra ends, but Team USA Curling began their quest to defend their gold medal with a narrow 6-5 victory over the ROC.

The defending gold medalists from Team USA, including Wisconsin stars John Shuster and Matt Hamilton, finally won the last stone of the fierce match.

Watch it below:

In the first game of the round robin, USA skipper John Shuster nailed the button in the extra ends for a narrow victory.

The United States almost won in the usual 10 ends. The 10th inning ended in a measure with the USA leading 5-4.

With the US and ROC having rocks on the edge of the button, if the US rock was closer to the button, the US would win. If the ROC were closer, they would grab the point to tie the game.

The ROC stone was determined to be closer to the middle, securing the point to tie the game and force the extra end before the United States took advantage of a poor rock from ROC skipper Sergei Glukhov to secure the win. .
