…Curling…

Curling has been around for more than 500 years. It was first played in the Olympic games at Chamonix, France, in 1924 and did not appear back in the olympic’s until 1998. This game is played in teams. 2 teams play against each other at a time. One game consists of 10 ends which are like innings in baseball. Team member sweep the ice clean in front of each stone to control the direction in which the stone will go. The object is to get the stone as close to the middle of the rings as possible.
