Which country did sport of curling originate?On April 2, 2022 by Drake
Curling is an Olympic sport in which players move stones across a sheet or ice towards a target. This area is then divided into four concentric circles. Curling originate in Canada. It’s related to shuffleboard (and boules), and bowls. Each team consists of four players who take turns sliding large, polished granite stone, also called rock, across an ice sheet toward their house. This circular target is marked on ice. Each player throws two of the eight stones. Each team is given eight stones. The purpose of this game is to accumulate points. Points will be awarded to the stones located closest to center of the house at end of each half. A game can have eight or ten end.
You can induce a curving path (also known as curl) by moving the stone slowly while it slides. Two sweepers with brooms, or brushes can further influence the rock’s trajectory. They will accompany the rock as it slides down the sheet and sweep away any ice. “Sweeping rock” reduces friction. The stone will travel straighter (with fewer curls) and for a longer distance. The best placement and path for a stone depends on the skill of the curlers. Let see some Important rules of curling.
