Major achievements in curling by nation


This article contains lists of achievements in major senior-level international curling and wheelchair curling tournaments according to first-place, second-place and third-place results obtained by teams representing different nations. The objective is not to create combined medal tables; the focus is on listing the best positions achieved by teams in major international tournaments, ranking the nations according to the most number of podiums accomplished by teams of these nations.

Results


For the making of these lists, results from following major international tournaments were consulted:

Medals earned by athletes from defunct National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) or historical teams are NOT merged with the results achieved by their immediate successor states. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) do NOT combine medals of these nations or teams.[1][2]

The tables are pre-sorted by total number of first-place results, second-place results and third-place results, respectively. When equal ranks are given, nations are listed in alphabetical order.

Notes


  1. Curling was included in the program of the inaugural Winter Olympic Games in 1924 in Chamonix,[lower-alpha 2] although the results of that competition were not considered official by the International Olympic Committee until 2006. The sport was finally added to the official program for the 1998 Winter Olympics.
