بكين 2022

الأولمبياد الشتوي - كيرلينغ

By Phil Bainbridge

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - تقام دورة الألعاب الأولمبية الشتوية لعام 2022، المعروفة رسميًا باسم الألعاب الأولمبية الشتوية الرابعة والعشرين، في بكين، الصين.

Olympic Curling will take place at the Beijing National Aquatics Centre, or “Ice Cube”. The pool at the Summer Olympics swimming venue has been converted into a four-sheet curling rink, requiring tolerances of just millimetres in the construction of the temporary structure to ensure there was no deformation or cracking of the ice. Three separate climate controlled zones to control temperature and humidity are utilised to meet World Curling Federation standards above the ice rink.
