Best Answer

Curling became an official Olympic sport for the 1998 Nagano games. It had been included as a "demonstration" sport a couple of times before that, but it wasn't official until 1998. Both men's and women's curling were included, and the 2018 games will see the Mixed Doubles discipline added.
