Curling nos Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno

By Phil Bainbridge

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Os Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno 2022, oficialmente designados XXIV Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno, têm lugar em Pequim, na 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.
