The 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang got off to a tough start for Team Canada in mixed doubles curling as Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris lost to Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten of Norway 9-6. The loss means that Canada is in almost a must win situation against the brother-sister duo of Rebecca and Matt Hamilton on Thursday morning at 4 am MT. Even though Lawes and Morris lost their opening match, they still have the experience to win Olympic gold. The following is my prediction of who will earn the 26 medals for Canada at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang:

GOLD–Mixed Doubles Curling–Kaitlyn Lawes of Winnipeg, Manitoba & John Morris of Canmore, Alberta
GOLD–Men’s Curling–Kevin Koe, Marc Kennedy, Brent Laing, Ben Hebert of Calgary, Alberta
