It is reported that the sport of curling gets its roots in Scotland and dates as far back as the early 1500s. Records show that curling was most likely brought to North America by British troops in the 1700s during the Revolutionary War. The rules, the equipment and the curlers have changed through the years but not the spirit of the game. The spirit of curling evolved the spirit of honorable competition followed by egalitarian sociality. This spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, fair conduct and competition on the ice, and hospitality and friendship after play.
Curling made its Olympic debut at the original Olympic Games in 1924. It came back in the 1932 Lake Placid Games as a demonstration sport, but then went on a 56-year Olympic hiatus, until it was brought back as a demonstration sport at the 1988 and 1992 Winter Games.
Curling returned as an official medal sport at the 1998 Nagano Games and continued in 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah and in 2006 at the Games Torino, Italy. While many fell in love with curling at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada!
