If you followed Winter Olympics carefully, you know that Curling has been a part of these games for many years. It was not until this year, that it became a prominent talking point in the United States. Low and behold, our men’s team rose from near death and captured the Gold Medal.Most people make light of it as an Olympic sport. If you haven’t tried it, listen to someone who has recently had the experience. Our daughter and son-in-law had the opportunity to take a lesson in Curling on a recent trip to North Carolina. Did you realize the stone is 40 pounds? That why it is pushed and not tossed. The professionals push with their arms, but an amateur is allowed to use a stick similar to playing shuffleboard. Special shoes are required because you are on ice. One foot needs traction for pushing off and the other needs to be slick in order for you to slide with the stone. If you fall, you must get up ASAP so that your body heat does not melt the ice! The brooms actually help guide the stone as well as slow it down or speed it up depending on how you sweep the ice. You might have thought it just took a big guy with a lot of luck to get the stone to reach the circle. Boy, were you wrong!According to Gina, it takes balance, endurance, flexibility, much effort, and a lot of athleticism. I know for a fact that she and Tony now respect a Curling pro!
