Curling


Curling has become a fan favorite since its introduction as an official Olympic sport in 1998. Teams slide heavy stones across the ice toward a target, with the aim of stopping the object as close to the center of the target as possible. A head-to-head team competition, the curling event starts with a round-robin tournament before heading into brackets for the medal round.
