      Two Canadians are the first to ever win a gold medal in mixed doubles curling at the Olympics.

      Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris have each won gold in the past with women's and men's curling teams, but this is the first time mixed doubles was allowed in the Winter Games.

      In this sport, the person who throws the rock also acts as a sweeper.

      Lawes and Morris soundly defeated the team from Switzerland 10-3 at the Gangneung Curling Centre.

      Only six athletes have ever won more than one Olympic gold medal in curling.

      Lawes took home her first at the 2014 Sochi Games as part of the Jennifer Jones rink; Morris won gold in Vancouver in 2010 as a member of Kevin Martin's rink.

      This gold medal came after Mikäel Kingsbury won gold in the men's moguls and Canadian figure skaters took gold in the team event.

      Canada has also won its first Olympic luge medal when Alex Gough came third in the women's event. She came fourth in Sochi in 2014.

      That's not the only bronze medal of the day. Kim Boutin also made it to the podium by coming third in the women's short track 500-metre speed skating event.

      As of this writing, Canada has three golds, four silvers, and three bronzes in Pyeongchang.
