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.

 

Canadian short-track speedskater Kim Boutin has captured a bronze medal in the women's 500 metres.

The athlete from Sherbrooke, Que., finished fourth but was bumped up to third after South Korea's Minjeong Choi was disqualified.

Boutin finished in 43.881 while Britain's Elise Christie crashed out of the five-woman final.

The medal capped what started out as a disappointing day for the Canadian team.

Veteran racer Marianne St-Gelais, competing in her final Games, failed to make it out of the quarterfinals after receiving a penalty for impeding.

 

Alex Gough captured Canada's first-ever medal in women's luge.

The Calgary native won the bronze medal in the women's singles race at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.

Competing at her fourth Olympics, Gough finished with a combined four-run time of three minutes 5.64 seconds.
