In Curling, You Can Lose By So Little That A Perfect Close-Up Can’t Even Convince You What Happened

You don’t need to understand curling to understand how ridiculously close Canada’s 7-6 loss to Sweden was.

Whichever stone was closest to the center earned a point. Red = Canada. Yellow = Sweden.

Sweden… won?

I guess so. Somewhat similar things have happened with video replay in football, but, man… no reversing calls here, no irrefutable evidence… just a picture, a few centimeters and a big ol’ LOSS.
