PyeongChang 2018In the inaugural running at an Olympic Winter Games of mixed doubles competition in curling, the Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation rink swept their way to a bronze medal at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation were actually outscored by six rocks in nine matches this tournament, but they had a knack for coming through in key moments to help them earn the bronze.

Russian curlers Anastasia Bryzgalova and Aleksandr Krushelnitckii on Tuesday won a bronze medal in mixed doubles at Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, gaining the first Olympic award in the history of curling in Russia, and bringing the third medal to Olympic athletes from Russia at the ongoing Games.

The pair married in June 2017 after sharing success in the sport. On Tuesday, they faced a team from Norway in a fight to clinch the bronze medal.

The OAR rink took control from the first end and maintained a comfortable lead, taking an unassailable 8-4 (2-0, 1-0, 0-2, 2-0, 0-2, 1-0, 1-0, 1-0) lead at the completion of the eighth end. "I feel like this is one of the coolest sports, actually", he said.

Strategy was the theme of the match and Norway could not compete with OAR.

"When we came here, we didn't have any special feelings", Krushelnitckiy said. We didn't feel anything.

The Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation was taking on Norway for the bronze medal when she slipped and fell right on her ice.

"And we can be proud about the whole tournament and all the matches".

The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation narrowly lost their semifinal match on a poor final shot, while Norway was forced to concede in the eighth end of their matchup with Canada.
