For those unfamiliar with her sport, curling, it is a most unusual event. It is not at all strenuous but rather very slow moving. Unlike almost every sport in these games, there is virtually no risk of injury. Consequently, her participation is not putting her unborn child at risk in any way.

Ok- I still don't know what this sport is.

I find it to be much like slow motion shuffleboard. From Wikipedia: Curling is a team sport with similarities to lawn bowling and shuffleboard played on a sheet of carefully prepared ice.
Two teams of four players take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the house (a circular target marked on the ice). The purpose is to complete each end (delivery of 16 stones) with the team's stones closer to the centre of the house than the other team's. Two sweepers with brooms or brushes accompany each stone and use stopwatches and their best judgment, along with direction from their teammates, to help direct the stones to their resting place.
The relaxed, turn-based progression of the game have led some to compare curling to chess and baseball.[1]

Curling should be pay-per-view, they would make millions!

I have nothing against curling, but it's not a sport that should be in the Olympics in my opinion. I know it takes skill, but it's slow as molasses and boring to all but the ones doing it. The ones who invented it must have been bored out of their minds with nothing else to do but slide stones across the ice. They needed brooms to sweep the ice.

And why not, as WOW says this is far from a strenous sport. Being from the Mid-west we all tried our hand at Curling in school....it's not as easy as it looks but it is fun.
