The aim of this sport is to throw a stone across the surface of the ice, as close as possible to the centre of a target.This sport originated from a 15th century Flemish tradition, which found its way to Scotland and was known as kulling. The curling stones weighed up to 50 kg. The circular handle-topped granite stones of today's competitions have only been in use since the last century.Despite the international federation headquarters' Scottish location, the best teams come from Canada.The game is played by two teams comprising four players. Two team members throw the stones, whilst the other two accelerate or slow the stone's progress across the ice by using a broom. Curling became an Olympic sport in 1988
