[Norsk under] Apparently, curling is the ultimate weirdo sport. Actually the whole thing sometimes resembles a family barbecue party from the 1980s. All sorts of strange characters of all hair-dos, ages, shapes and sizes appear – wearing matching track suites! There’s cousin Linda with her mullet, a turquoise sweater and a broom and there’s uncle John with his beer-belly, weird mustache and, ehem, also a broom….
Every four years when the Winter Olympics come around we find ourselves asking the same question: How the hex did this bizarre garden party on ice come to be recognized as an Olympic sport?
