Canada wins curling gold

The first Olympic gold medal in mixed doubles curling goes to Canada.

Canada's John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes beat defending world champions Jenny Perret and Martin Rios of Switzerland 10-3 in the gold-medal game.

Ottawa's Morris and Winnipeg's Lawes claimed the second Olympic gold medals of their careers and Canada's third of the Pyeongchang Games.

Lawes was third for the Jennifer Jones team that won women's team gold in 2014. Morris was vice for Kevin Martin when they took the men's team title in 2010.

Mixed doubles curling made its Olympic debut in Pyeongchang.

After trading deuces with the Swiss in the first two ends, the Canadians scored a pivotal four in the third to lead 6-2.
