2011 Canadian Wheelchair #Curling Championship: Wheelies 101

What's wheelchair curling all about? Watch and learn:

VANOC put out that super informative video for the 2010 Paralympic Games. Another informative video from the Canadian Curling Association is also worth watching.

Interested in seeing some live action?
