Wheelchair curling made its debut at the Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games.
Wheelchair curling is open to athletes with a physical impairment in the lower part of the body.
Athletes compete in wheelchairs in mixed teams events according to the rules of the World Curling Federation (WCF), with only one modification – no sweeping. Teams take turns to deliver stones down the ice to get closer to the centre of the target or “house” than their opponent.
