The mixed doubles curling tournament of the 2018 Winter Olympics was held at the Gangneung Curling Centre from 8 to 13 February 2018.[1] Eight nations competed in a round robin preliminary round, and the top four nations at the conclusion of the round robin qualified for the medal round.[2] This was the first time mixed doubles was held at the Winter Olympics.

On 18 February 2018, it was reported that bronze medallist Alexander Krushelnitskiy of the Olympic Athletes from Russia team had failed a drug test and was awaiting a test of the B sample.[3][4] After the testing of the B sample, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) confirmed that they were instituting formal proceedings[5]; three days later, CAS disqualified the Olympic Athletes from Russia team and stripped them of the bronze medal, which was reawarded to the Norwegian team.[6]

Teams[edit]

Teams have one male and one female thrower, with one curler throwing rocks #1 and #5 and the other throwing rocks #2, #3 and #4. Only the Olympic Athletes from Russia team have the female curler throwing the middle three rocks and the male curler throwing first and last. The remainder of the teams have the male curler throwing the middle three rocks and the female curler throwing first and last. Teams can change at any time.
