Team Sports

The team sports of Curling (2events) and ice hockey (2 events) are played on ice rinks. In curling, each team slides large polished stones across the ice towards a circular target. Points are scored by whichever team leaves one of their stones closest to the centre of the target. The team with the most points after ten "ends" is the winner. In ice hockey, players carry ice-hockey sticks and try to score by using them to hit a small, flat object called a "puck" into the opposing team's goal.

charter (n): an official document that states an organization's aims and rules - The Olympic Charter is often revised by the IOC.

ice rink (n) (also "ice-skating rink"): a large flat area of ice, or a building containing this - There's an ice rink and a bowling alley on the top floor of the mall.

spin (n): a move in which a figure skater continually rotates - In many spins, skaters rotate on one foot while holding the other.

jump (n): a move in which skaters rotate in mid-air or skiers jump off a ramp - I still fall over a lot when I practise my jumps.

lift (n): a move in which a skater lifts his or her partner into the air while rotating - We're trying to learn a new lift, but it's not easy.

slope (n): the side of a hill or mountain down which you can ski or sled - The steeper a slope is, the faster you can go.

slide (v): to move smoothly over a wet or slippery surface - The kids were sliding down a grassy slope in old cardboard boxes.
