Wheelchair Curlers Break Barriers


Check out how these guys roll on the ice.

In Canada, the wheelchair curlers have a full national league. In this clip you can see Richard Dudek of Manitoba’s Wheelchair Curlers show the device used in place of the broom to throw the rock on the ice. The device in the video is often called a “curler’s cue” or “delivery stick.” The cue holds on to the handle of the stone and is then pushed along by the curler. At the end of delivery, the curler pulls back on the cue, which releases it from the stone.
