By Dawn McEwen (Team Canada lead) — The game has been over for around an hour now and I’m still shaking. This is so exciting!
By Ryan Fry (Team Canada third) — We had a great practice today to get ready for the semifinal on Wednesday against China.
By Jill Officer (Team Canada second) —We had a good end to the round robin tonight against South Korea. I found out during the media interviews that we’re the first women’s team to ever go unbeaten in the round robin at the Olympics.
By Ryan Harnden (Team Canada lead) — Oh, man. My heart is beating pretty quick right now! But it was pretty calm on that last sweep. Brad knew his weight, and we just cleaned it in there, pretty much.
By Elaine Dagg-Jackson (Team Canada national women’s coach) — I knew coming into Sochi that our women’s team would be a contender, but I think they are even better than I expected them to be.
By E.J. Harnden (Team Canada second) — The grinding has paid off! We’re in the playoffs, and that’s a big load off our shoulders. This morning’s game against the U.S. was a tough one; John’s team played very well, but we were able to make some big shots at the end for the win.
By Paul Webster (Team Canada Team Leader) — This is my third Olympics with the Canadian curling teams, and in many ways it’s already very rewarding.
By Rick Lang (Team Canada national men’s coach) — Today’s game against Great Britain had a little bit of everything, but I was really proud of the guys to hang in there for the win.
By Janet Arnott (Team Canada coach) — It was good to get back on the ice today at the Ice Cube, and the girls played very well to beat Japan this morning. The Japanese team gave us a very good test, but we managed to get it done in the end!
By Tom Coulterman (Team Canada coach) — Being my first Olympic experience, it’s just fun being here with the boys in the Olympic Village and all the other parts of this Olympic Games. It’s just a great experience.
By Kaitlyn Lawes (Team Canada third) — We kept our winning streak alive tonight against a really good Switzerland team, and we’re very happy with the way we’ve been curling. We won twice today, and that’s a nice way to go to bed, especially with a day off tomorrow!!!
By Caleb Flaxey (Team Canada alternate) — My wife Alli is here to cheer on our team. She flew here after skipping Ontario at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Montreal.
By Dawn McEwen (Team Canada lead) — This morning’s game against Denmark wasn’t easy, so we were glad to pull out the win in the end.
By Ryan Harnden (Team Canada lead) — We knew it would be an intense night at the Ice Cube, and, yeah, the crowd was crazy.
