What is your sport: Curling
Curling is a sport played on ice. 2 teams consisting of 4 players take turns sliding flat stones down the ice surface toward a target circle. Team members use curling brooms to smooth the ice surface in front of the stone – controlling the speed and direction. The goal is to get the stone as close to the centre of the circle as possible.
Curling requires a specific skill set. The person delivering the stone down the ice needs a certain level of balance to avoid wobble. Upper and lower body strength, as well as stamina, are also necessary attributes in the team members that perform the sweeping.
