9781552630839: Curling: The History, The Players, The Game

Once a little known sport, played only in Scotland and Canada, curling has exploded onto the international sports scene, culminating in its debut as a full medal sport at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

Each year millions of players in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan take to the ice to play this fascinating game -- now an Olympic sport. Curling is the ideal book for anyone interested in the sport.

Written by Warren Hansen, a Canadian Men's Curling Champion and authority on the game, Curling includes sections on:

  • The History: The game's Scottish origins, and its migration to Canada and the United States.
  • The Events: The history and highlights of the great tournaments; the Brier, Scott Tournament of Hearts, World Juniors and Curling Championships. Includes the exciting inside story of taking curling to the Olympics.
  • The Players: Legends, players of the '90s and members of the Hall of Fame -- their stories and statistics.

In addition, sections on the basics of the game (equipment, objectives, rules and etiquette); as well as instructional sections on strategies and techniques make this the complete and essential book for curling fans, players and armchair enthusiasts.
