Curling 2020 - 2021 Discussion Thread

That's how live works

Yeah, but that's what I mean: this is content that is much better if it's available for interested people to watch later. I mean, how many people are interested in Guyana's curling team in the first place and how many of them are live at the few moments in which it's available? They're just missing out on a much bigger audience.

 

But alright, if they're having fun, it's fine I guess :p

Work as started on the Nigerian Curling Federation’s new Curling Center. This will be the first purpose built curling in Africa!

Guyana at the Olympics in curling? Hmm... as long as Canada and USA suffocate all the quota for Americas I don't see anyone else qualifying from that region whatsoever.

And even if they changed the quota to allow 3 teams from the Americas

So you, guys, say that there is a continental allocation for the curling at the Olympics? Interesting.

I don't think we'll see Guyana in curling at WOG anytime in the XXI century tbh.

Brave words at the beginning of just the third decade.

The quota is in place for the World Championships though and without that, you can kiss the Olympics goodbye.

 

It's not about two decades, it's about the 100+ years of Guyana fielding a team in any team event at the Olympics. The grand total is ZERO so I don't think the first team they ever qualify for the Olympics will happen in curling of all sports. It's called deduction.

 

Guyana has never even fielded a single athlete during Winter Games, not even some Habsburg monarchy descendant living in South America or some aged American skier or whomever else :lol:

I suppose you haven't heard about Pre-Q Tournament which came into the Beijing 2022 Qualification System. Welcome to the third decade of the XXI century, then.

You didn't pass the exam - either from maths or history.

Maybe it's because they just started curling. Interesting way of thinking - if you don't have a skater or alpine skier, you surely won't have a curling team.

 

BTW, curling is the easiest way to get to the Olympics from totally sport zero - you can reach the top national level in quite few years of regular training and if you get to the National Team... well, enough to say :TUR became the WCF member in 2009 and next year they will play at Europeans in women's divison A. Just a decade.
