The curling mixed doubles tournament will wrap up with Tuesday's gold medal game between Italy and Norway.

The game, which is set to begin at 7:05 a.m. ET, will be contested between two dominant forces. Italy is a perfect 10-0 in mixed doubles so far after cruising to an 8-1 win over Sweden in the semifinals. Norway survived the semifinal over Great Britain on the final throw to secure a 6-5 victory.

Italy's Stefania Constantini and Amos Mosaner have been in total control since arriving in Beijing. They are outscoring opponents 87-49 through 10 games.

Norway's Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten, who are married, will improve on their bronze medal from 2018 regardless of Tuesday's results. Norway is 7-3 in the Olympics, with losses to Italy, Canada and the Czech Republic.

In their first game during the round robin, Italy defeated Norway 11-8 after closing the match on a 6-2 run.
