Kaitlyn Lawes on winning the first Olympic Winter Games mixed doubles gold and her second Olympic gold medal:

“It’s surreal, to be honest. I don’t think even the first one has sunk in and I don’t think it ever will. But it’s just a dream come true to represent our country on the world’s biggest stage, and to be able to bring this home for Canada is so special.”
