Did you know curling is an official sport of the Winter Olympics?
Via Wikipedia, "Curling is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice towards a target area. It is related to bowls, boule and shuffleboard. Two teams, each of four players, take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones, also called "rocks", across the ice curling sheet towards the house, a circular target marked on the ice."

It just so happens that we know a curling athlete, and she has participated in the Olympic trials in 2009! Her name is Nina Reiniger, and she's currently working with LitWorld to develop curriculum for the LitClubs we're launching with Partners in Health in the near future.
She'll be visiting our Girls Club at the Harlem Polo Grounds very soon, and we're excited to have her share her knowledge and her accomplishments to inspire the Harlem girls!
