What is Curling?

According to Loco Solare's official website, "Curling is a winter sport in which teams count their points by sliding stones across the ice in an attempt to secure the closest spot to the center of a circle called the "house."

It's also known as "chess on ice" because of the strategy involved in it.
The more you know about the rules and how scoring works, the more you can enjoy watching the game.
Loco Solare is made up of five members with four taking part in the competition at one time.
Curling has become an official Olympic sport since 1998, in the Nagano Winter Olympics.
Mixed double curling, in which boys and girls are paired, has become an official event since the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Curling emphasizes strategizing against the opposing team while accurately sliding the stones and using brushes to adjust speed and direction.
You can see pitching and sweeping at 1:08 in the video.
It'll be interesting to see if Loco Solare will be able to win a gold medal after taking home bronze at the last Winter Olympics.
