Canada is fourth place in the overall medal standings with seven top spots as of Monday afternoon, and third in the gold standings with two victories as day four in South Korea’s Pyeongchang comes to a close. 

Team Canada was second overall for some of the morning before dropping to fourth place by the afternoon.

Canada still holds third place for gold medal standings with two but they share the place with the Netherlands, France and the United States.

History could be made Tuesday morning local time at 6:05 a.m. when Canada’s Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris will have the opportunity to win the first-ever mixed doubles gold-medal game and become the first Canadian curlers to win two golds.

Canada has the record for the most golds won in a single Winter Olympic games from Vancouver 2010, where the team clinched 14 of the medals — which also happens to secure the record for the most gold’s won on home soil.

Several more days of snowboarding, curling, hockey and other Canadian-dominant sports have yet to be played in the remaining 13 days in Pyeongchang.
