The world’s top curling coach and her team have been named to the Rio Olympic team for the 2020 games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian media reported.
The black-haired women’s curling team, led by curling legend and gold medalist Maria de Jesús, was announced by the national federation of curling clubs, Sport and Curling, on Wednesday.
Curling is a sport in which a team of five curlers competes against one another.
The Rio Olympics will be the first time a woman has competed at the Games in five of the past six Games.
Maria de Jesuales won gold in the women’s 100m backstroke at the London Games in 2008 and is the only woman to win three gold medals at the Sochi Olympics in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
She also won gold at both the 2008 and 2016 Games in Beijing, China.
The women’s 800m freestyle team, the women who compete in curling, won silver at the Rio Games in 2020 and will compete in the finals of the 2020 Games in a bid to win the Olympic crown.
