Curling has been a sport that has earned medals during the Winter Olympic Games since the 1998 Winter Olympics. The current season includes men’s mixed doubles, women’s, as well as mixed events (the mixed doubles competition was held for the first time in 2018).
In February 2002, the International Olympic Committee retroactively decided that the curling contest in 1924’s Winter Olympics (originally called Semaine des Sports d’Hiver (also known as International Winter Sports Week) could be considered to be officially Olympic events and would no longer be considered as demonstration events. Thus, those first Olympic medals for curling, that was at the time played outdoors, were awarded for the 1924 Winter Games, with the gold medal awarded by 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 against 4.
Since the sport’s addition to the sport in 1998’s Olympics, Canada has dominated the sport with their men’s teams winning gold in 2006, 2010, and 2014, and silver in 1998 and 2002. Women’s teams won gold in both 1998 and 2014 with a silver medal in 2010 and a bronze medal in 2002 and 2006. The mixed doubles team won gold in 2018.
