Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

Laura Nagy of Hungary and Canada’s Nathan Young teamed up to win cold in curling mixed doubles at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020.

17-year-old Nagy from Budapest and Young, also 17, beat silver medallists Chana Beitone from France and Russian curler Nikolai Lysakov 9-5 in the final.

Bronze went to Junhang Pei of China and Vit Chabicovsky from the Czech Republic.

The mixed doubles curling teams were made up of one woman and one man from different National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and only 5 stones were delivered during each end. Each team also had one extra stone placed into a special position, prior to the start of each end. 

Those extra stones were either in front of the house or in the middle of the house, depending on which team started playing during that end. 

One of the players delivered the 1st and last stone of the end, the other player delivered the 2nd, 3rd and 4th stone for that end.

Because the tournament was classified as a mixed NOC event, the Olympic flag was raised in all three positions at the medal ceremony.
