It's another golden day for Canada in Pyeongchang.
Athletes have netted three more medals, including a gold on Tuesdayand now Canada is on pace for its best showing ever at a Winter Olympic Games.
The new sport of Mixed Doubles Curling saw Winnipeg's Kaitlyn Lawes and Ottawa's John Morris continue their dominance.
The Canadians traded deuces with the Swiss in the first two ends, before scoring a pivotal four in the third to take a 6-2 lead.
This game would end after just six short ends with the Canadians demolishing Switzerland in a 10-3 victory.
It's the second Olympic gold for each curler. Lawes won gold with Canada’s women in Sochi, while Morris won with the men in Vancouver in 2010.
There were also two bronze medals for Canada on Tuesday from Canadian women.
One comes from short track speed skater Kim Boutin, who won her first Olympic medal. It's the first winter games for the 23-year-old who hails from Sherbooke, Quebec and lives in Montreal.
Disappointment turned to celebration on the short track speed skating rink, when Canadian speed skater Marianne St-Gelais was disqualified for interference in the quarter-finals of the women's 500 metres, but teammateKim Boutin moved on to the final. The 23-year-old Quebec native was able to claim a bronze medal after finishing fourth, but was moved up to third when the skater from South Korea was disqualified.
Boutin will compete with St-Gelais and fellow Canadians Jamie Macdonald and Kasandra Bradette in the 3,000 metres next Tuesday.
Finally, Calgary's Alex Gough brought home the country's third medal of the morning: a bronze in women's singles luge.
It's Canada’s first-ever Olympic medal in the event.
Gough whipped down the track in a combined time of three minutes 5-point-6-4 seconds.
That was just a bit better than teammate Kimberley McRae of Calgary, who finished just off the podium in the 5th spot and fellow Canadian Brooke Apshkrum finished 13th.
