EXTRA: Topsy-turvy Games continue: U.S. wins Curling, no vote on Russia

TSX EXTRA – for Feb. 24, 2018: The PyeongChang Games have been an exercise in patience and unpredictability. The weather has been alternately perfect and perverse and the carefully-planned schedule has been thrown – literally – to the wind.

Now the International Olympic Committee is having its own scheduling issues, unable to come up with a decision on Saturday about whether to reinstate the Russian National Olympic Committee in time to allow the Russian flag to be used in the Closing Ceremony.

In the meantime, the Games aren’t over. As so often happens in an Olympic Games, new heroes have emerged and favorites have faded and there are still four events to be completed on Sunday. We have the details and more in this EXTRA:

  • Team scoring: U.S. moves into second, passing Germany! Can it last?
  • Unimaginable U.S. win in Curling final over Sweden turned in the 8th end;
  • Canadian men win bronze in Ice Hockey over the Czech Republic;
  • Czech Ester Ledecka makes history and wins Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom;
  • Joey Mantia just misses Speed Skating bronze as Mass Start events debut.
