Curling is a gold-medal sport during the Winter Olympic Games since the 1998 Winter Olympics. The current season includes men’s mixed doubles, and women’s tournaments (the mixed doubles tournament was held for the first time in 2018).
In February 2002 in February 2002, the International Olympic Committee retroactively decided that the curling tournament from the 1924 Winter Olympics (originally called Semaine des Sports d’Hiver or International Winter Sports Week) was to be officially recognized as Olympic events and would no longer be considered to be demonstrations. Therefore, those first Olympic medals in curling which was played outdoors, were given during the 1924 Winter Games, with the gold medal being won from Great Britain, two silver medals won by Sweden, and the bronze by France. A demonstration event was played during the 1932 Winter Olympic Games between four teams from Canada and four teams from the United States, with Canada winning 12 games to four.
Since the sport’s inclusion at the 1998 Olympics, Canada has dominated the sport with their men’s teams winning gold in the years 2006 2010 and 2014 with silver medals in 1998 and 2002. The women’s team took gold in both 1998 and 2014 as well as silver in the year 2010 as well as a bronze medal in 2002 and 2006. Team mixed doubles won gold in 2018.
