Curling Back in Time
Curling was probably invented in Scotland in the 16th century in medieval times and in its early days was played on frozen ponds or lochs. Its nickname The Roaring Game originates from the rumbling sound the granite stones make while traveling over the ice.
The world’s oldest curling stone is now kept in The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum in Stirling. In 1924, eight curlers for men’s team represented Great Britain for the first Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix, France where Great Britain defeated Sweden and France.
Curling was a minority sport until it got an enormous publicity boost when the British Women’s team (all Scots) won the Gold medal the 2002 Winter Olympics and a bronze in 2014. Scottish teams took gold in the men’s world championship in 2006 and 2009; in the women’s world championship in 2013; and in the mixed world championship in 2017. Curling news quickly spread throughout the world and with a steady step, it became a sport that captured the hearts of many curling enthusiasts.
