The American team is one of eight that qualified in mixed curling. Besides the Russian duo, Canada, China, Finland, Norway, Switzerland and South Korea are represented.

Already, the Hamilton family has built a social media following, with Twitter users tweeting hashtag #HamFam during past qualifying events. "

I started thinking of it as horeshoes on ice, and I was able to understand it a little bit.
