Many believe that curling is named after the way the stones "curl" on the ice.
Curling is nicknamed "the roaring game" because of the sound the stones make on the ice.
If you're all about strategy, then try out for the skip of the team — they need to figure out the best throws and know how to communicate with their team to win the game.
Curling ice isn't smooth — ice makers spray water droplets on it to form pebbles when they freeze. This helps the stones curl after they're thrown.
There are several differences between standard and mixed doubles curling: standard teams are four players throwing 16 stones for 10 ends while doubles teams are two players throwing 5 stones for eight ends.
Canada has won a medal in curling at every Winter Olympics except for the very first one.
