Curling is a game played between two teams composed of four players each. The game is played on ice, and members of both teams deliver a 19.96 kg stone towards a circular target area, called the «house» alternating with an opponent. The objective is to get the stone closer to the center of the house than any stone of the opposition. One game consists of ten «ends». During each end, each team steers eight stones — two stones per person, alternating with the opponent. Team members deliver the stones in a set order presented to officials before the game. The first player is known as the lead. He or she is followed by the second, then the third (also known as the vice-skip) and finally the skip, or team leader. After all 16 stones have been delivered the score is determined. Only one team can score per end. A team scores one point for each of its own stones located in or touching the house that is closer to the center of the house than any of the opposition’s stones. The team with the most points after 10 ends is the winner. If the score is tied after the 10th end, an «extra-end» period is added. Extra ends are played until one side wins. There are two medal events in curling: men’s and women’s team competition.
