BEJING (mocnews.com) Beijing’s Winter Olympics have felt the effect of COVID-19. Competitions leading up to the Olympics were cancelled, training sites shut down and curlers forced into isolation. One thing the curlers have missed out on is their social culture
Curlers have missed out on so much while preparing for the Olympics. Brooacking is a time of celebrating after the fames have been taken from the athletes.
The game venue and transportation have seen changes with the games. Games are taking place inside a venue away from the rest of the city. Athletes are being transported in their own “bubble”, robbing the curlers of their social culture.
Bejing, China was ravished by COVID-19 before the Olympics even begin. The numbers increased across the city during the construction of the venues. COVID-19 will leave the city with a steep price.
While athletes faced many hurdles, curling has become a favorite with the USA citizens, including the senior population.
