Russia’s mixed doubles curling team takes bronze at 2018 Olympics
Russia’s "neutral" mixed doubles curling team defeated the Norwegian team in the match for third place in the double-mixed discipline at the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang with a score of 8:4.
Anastasia Bryzgalova and Alexander Krushelnytsky represented the team of Olympic athletes from Russia. The Norwegian national team included Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten.
This is the second time the team of Olympic athletes from Russia defeated the Norwegians in the Olympics - in the preliminary round, the Russians took the lead with a score of 4:3. Krushelnytsky and Bryzgalova became the first curlers from Russia to win the Olympic medal, TASS recalls.
This is the first Winter Olympic Games to hold curling competitions among mixed pairs.
Thus, the Olympic athletes from Russia currently have three medals (one silver and two bronze). Previously, short-track speed skater Semion Elistratov finished third in Men’s 1500m at the Olympic Games and the Russia’s "neutral" team won the silver medal in the team figure skating event.
