What’s Cool About The Mixed Doubles Curling Teams

I’m here to tell you a bit about the curlers going for gold in Beijing today. And a bit about those chasing bronze, too.

The point is to give you added context in the hope you’ll enjoy the games to the max. And if you don’t watch, here’s hoping you’ll nod your head after reading and think … “cool.”

Almida and Oskar

The Swedes are a relatively new tandem. Oskar Eriksson plays third for Niklas Edin’s superstar men’s foursome (which starts play on Wednesday) and it turns out he’s pretty good at mixed doubles, too. He and Swedish women’s team skip Anna Hasselborg won the world mixed doubles title in 2019, but Anna’s team then decided they wanted to focus on four-player team stuff. Oskar figured, okay, perhaps I’ll do that too. Sounds pretty casual.
