Keep your curling obsession alive!
Marissa Payne of the Washington Post reports, Wheelchair curling is similar to the original sport, but with two key differences (besides the wheelchair) — the teams are coed and there’s no sweeping. “It’s all strategy with a lot of technical ability,” said Canada’s skip Jim Armstrong in a demonstration video. Canada won the gold medal in 2010 and is a favorite to win again in Sochi.
Team USA will also field a team, which is expected to get some airtime on NBC Sports and MPower will have an exclusive reporter in the ‘house’! Team USA’s first match will be against Slovakia at 12:30 a.m. EST on March 8.
