Curling is a popular winter sport in Canada; it is slowly
catching on in the rest of the world.
Croatia is one of the competing teams at the 2009 European
Curling championships (hearing).
What is the big deal is that all of the participants on the
Croatian national curling team is deaf! The deaf team defeated
all hearing teams in Croatia for the rights to represent the
nation at the world championships!
It is the first time that an all-deaf team is representing
its own nation at a world championship athletic event!
It took place in Year 2009
