Top Curling Stories of 2018

2018 was a banner year for curling and there are so many moments to celebrate.

The Olympics highlighted our sport on the world stage in front of all sports fans and gave curling a huge boost around the world. We've seen increased exposure to the sport in newer markets with Team Shuster winning Gold for the United States and the first Olympic medals for Korea and Japan.

Mixed Doubles made its debut on the Olympic stage and the high-paced discipline added new excitement to the sport and brought in many new fans.

This was the year that the Tim Hortons Brier and Scotties Tournament of Hearts ran a new format with the wildcard entry that also brought all regions in Canada into the National Championship for the first time.

With all these exciting moments, we've compiled a list of moments from our @CurlingZone Twitter account that generated the most interest from all of our fans!
