Curling is considered the fastest growing sport in America, and the men’s USA team took home gold at the 2018 winter Olympics. Players slide a curling stone down a long sheet of ice at a central target while teammates use brushes or brooms to sweep the ice in the path of the stone. It’s been referred to as “shuffleboard on ice.”
