Curling en los Olímpicos de Invierno

By Phil Bainbridge

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Las Olimpiadas Invernales 2022, conocidas oficialmente como los XXIV Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno, se realizan en Beijing, China.

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.
