Curling is played by sliding heavy granite stones (rocks) across an iced surface (sheet). It was invented in Scotland in the early 16th C. It was also one of the first sports girls and women enjoyed playing. 1998 was the first year that curling was officially included in the Olympics and in 2018, besides the men's and women's teams, there will also be mixed doubles teams.
In 2014 the winners were:
(Women) Canada (G), GB (S), Sweden (B)
(Men) Canada (G), Sweden (S), GB (B).
