There is one sport during the Winter Olympics that is a mystery to many — and a lot of times the talk of the games — and that is the sport of curling.
Originating in Scotland back in the 16th century, many sites will explain in detail how curling works and how the game is won. From the number of players on each team to the object of the interesting game itself.
We gathered some rules for curling, which will play out once again at the Olympics games beginning this week. First starters, the game is won by the team that scores the most points after all the rounds, which are called ends, are complete. Most curling matches take place over ten or sometimes eight ends. Also, curling is played between two teams of four using eight granite stones each.
According to NBC, Curling will consist of three events: mixed doubles, men’s, and women’s at the 2022 Winter Olympics. Nine medals in total to be up for grabs.
The curling tournament, which is also known as a bonspiel, will take place from February 2 to February 19. Mixed doubles will take place from February 2-8, and men’s and women’s stretch from February 9-17. Semifinals and medal games start February 17 and run through February 19.
