Curling

Curling is a team sport with similarities to bowls and shuffleboard, played by two teams of four players each on a rectangular sheet of carefully prepared ice.

Teams take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the target (called the house).

Two sweepers with brooms accompany each rock and use timing equipment and their best judgment, along with direction from their teammates, to help direct the stones to their resting place.

The complex nature of stone placement and shot selection has led some to refer to curling as "chess on ice”. Curling was incorporated into the Asian Winter Games in 2003.
