If there's one sport that catches people's eye at the Winter Olympics, it's curling. Whether it's curiosity in trying to understand the rules, wondering how it's a "sport" anyway, or genuine interest, it's definitely intriguing. Soon, we'll have a chance to take in the action here in Charlotte.
A new curling center is set to open on Old Statesville Road just north of Sunset Road. Construction is slated to start this month.
