While figure skating, ice hockey, and skiing still get the lion's share of media coverage when it comes to the Winter Olympics, the 2010 Vancouver Games have thrust another, more obscure, sport into the limelight: curling.

Stephen Colbert was so taken with the sport that he offered his services to the US Men's Curling Team, who politely declined.

One storyline has been how the curlers are just regular Joes who happen to be handy with a broom. But it's not the regular Joes that have the most appeal. It's the regular Janes (see slideshow for photographic evidence).

Women's Olympic Curling is all the rage.

Russia's Ludmila Privivkova, Denmark's Madeleine Dupont, Sweden's Eva Lund and our own Nicole Joraanstad are just a few of the many brave women who can throw the stone and scrub the ice with the best of them.

In the just-completed Women's Bronze Medal game, China defeated Switzerland 12-6.

The Women's Gold Medal game between Canada and Sweden takes place at 5 p.m. Central Time.
