Welcome to curling! How curling became an Olympic sport (History part 2)

Our Welcome to Curling series is designed to help newcomers to the sport understand what they’re watching during the 2022 Olympics and beyond. In this episode, we cover the modern history of curling and how the game has professionalized since becoming part of the full Olympic program in 1998. We are joined by Ryan Nagelhout, a sports writer and podcaster who covers Buffalo sports.

Additional episodes in this series go deeper into the game of curling, including the rules, strategy and terminology of the game.
