Sports Communication: Electronic Hog Line observation suspension

Due to technical issues with the curling stone handles, the electronic observation system will be suspended for hog line judging starting from Men’s round-robin session eight at 14:05 on Monday 14 February.

The Chief Ice Technician and the Technical Delegates have determined that the handles currently in use will remain in place on the stones. However, the electronic surveillance will be disconnected and manual hog line judging will be in effect.

Per the World Curling Federation Rules of Curling and Rules of Competition, a stone must be clearly released from the hand before it reaches the hog line at the delivery end. If the player fails to do so, the stone is immediately removed from play by the delivering team.
