So this sport is very suitable for woman.
Besides,the curling can also help to develop the human, because it places more emphasis on the contest of wisdom.
Ice hockey: the fistfights are common
Ice hockey is different from the refined and cultured curling, as akegeesports, hockey players always play a match at high speed.
