Interesting Fact - Curling - Winter Olympic Fact

The world's first indoor curling match, on artificial ice, took place in Manchester, in 1877.

(Unfortunately the rink closed soon after the match was played.

Curling made its Olympic debut in Chamonix in 1924, but it didn't become a permanent Winter Olympics sport until Nagano in 1998.

The UK has gone a bit nuts over curling, as we have won a medal, and should win another later today.  After these Olympics I doubt we will hear of it again for 4 years.)
