What to watch in mixed doubles round robin finale

What to watch in mixed doubles round robin finale

Canada and Team OAR are already guaranteed two of the four semifinal spots in mixed doubles curling, but three others teams – Switzerland, Norway and China – will be fighting it out tonight for the other two.

Norway will play China at 7:05 p.m. in both teams’ final games of round robin play. If Norway wins, they will automatically reach the semifinals along with Switzerland. If China defeats Norway, however, they would force a tiebreak game to be played Sunday morning at 6:05 a.m. EST.

The two teams that would play in the potential tiebreak game will depend on Switzerland’s game against Team OAR Saturday night. Switzerland is guaranteed at least a spot in the tiebreaker, and automatically makes the semifinals with a win.

The United States, Korea and Finland have all be eliminated from medal contention.

Canada is guaranteed the No. 1 seed in the semifinals. Team OAR could end up in any of the other 2-4 seeds based on Saturday night’s games.
