Curling is a medal sport in the Winter Olympic Games since the 1998 Winter Olympics. The current season includes men’s women’s, and mixed doubles tournaments (the mixed doubles tournament was held for the first time in the year 2018).
In February 2002 The International Olympic Committee retroactively decided that the curling competition of the 1924 Winter Olympics (originally called Semaine des Sports d’Hiver or International Winter Sports Week) was to be considered official Olympic events, and would no longer be considered demonstration events. So, one of the first Olympic medals in curling, which at the time was played outside, were awarded in 1924’s Winter Games, with the gold medal awarded from Great Britain, two silver medals from Sweden and the bronze being awarded to France. A tournament of demonstration was played during the 1932 Winter Olympic Games between four teams from Canada and four teams from the United States, with Canada winning 12 games to 4.
Since the sport’s inclusion at the 1998 Olympics, Canada has dominated the sport , with their men’s teams winning gold in the years 2006 2010 and 2014, and silver in 2002 and 1998. The women’s team took gold in the year 1998 and 2014 as well as silver in the year 2010 and a bronze in 2002 and in 2006. The mixed doubles team took home gold in 2018.
