Following the completion of the second day's matches, Canada, Norway, Switzerland and OAR lie in joint-first place.

The Canadians jumped out to a 4-0 lead against the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation team before adding a deuce in the fourth end to take a 6-1 lead.

The top four teams in the standings at the end of the round-robin games advance to the semifinals on Monday.

According to CNBC , a November 29 email from Spirit had given Belen Aldecosea a green light to bring the hamster on board. PETA has since condemned the move, calling it both cruel and illegal. "This must have been a horrific, terrifying death".

The offense stalled from there though, as they were only able to muster one point over the next four ends, and another single point in the seventh.

Korea picked up two point for the tie on the eighth on a takeout throw by Hyeji Jang that landed on the button and forced the extra end.

The Olympic Athletes from Russia's defense was tremendous in the win.

China opened the match with three quick points. The teams traded points over the next two ends, and South Korea headed into the final frame trailing 6-2.
