John Shuster has found his long-awaited redemption. After Shuster's subpar performances at the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Games, and a 2-4 record midway through these these Games, many had written him off. But with his back against the wall, Shuster led his team to five straight wins, culminating with a 10-7 victory over Sweden for Team USA's first-ever gold medal in curling. Relive Team Shuster's historic run to the gold medal through these photos.
