They won for Team USA, but the men's curling gold medal was very much made in Minnesota.

With 4 out of 5 team members from the Land of 10,000 Lakes – and the other just across the border in Wisconsin – the "Miracurl on Ice" had special significance for Minnesota.

John Shuster, Tyler Geoge, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo all curl out of Duluth, so it was at the Duluth Curling Club where celebrations were the biggest in the early hours of Saturday morning.

More than 100 family, friends and fans gathered in the club to watch their hometown heroes clinch the gold – and you can check out their reactions below.
