Tonight will be your last night to get your Olympic fix before the closing ceremonies tomorrow and we have ourselves a stacked slate of gold medal finals. This is really why we watch the Olympics. Not for the heats or the qualifications. We want to see the best compete against the best that’s what we have tonight.
You’ll see gold medal finals in men’s hockey, men’s bobsled, speed skating (both men and women), men’s cross country and of course, women’s curling. And if tonight’s curling final between South Korea and Sweden is anything like the men’s final last night, we’re in for a treat. I know Mr. T will be watching.
So before the event starts later, let’s meet Swedish curler, Sofia Mabergs. Anyone who has the full sleeve tat becomes an automatic favorite, in my opinion.
Swedish curler Sofia Mabergs plays lead position for the rink skipped by Anna Hasselborg. Mabergs joined Hasselborg’s team during the 2015-2016 season, and the fresh foursome quickly ascended to the top of curling’s ranks. They won a silver medal at the 2016 European Championships, which earned them the opportunity to compete at the 2017 World Championships. In their first worlds appearance together, Hasselborg’s rink finished just off the podium in fourth place.
