Brief Description
Yellow curling stone handle, round and flat with a grey grip. The words 'BEIJING 2022' and two sets of Olympic rings are printed in black on the yellow part of the handle. There are two sets of two small lights, one red one green, either side of the grip. The handle has been bolted to an official granite curling stone, that was not originally used with this particular handle. The stone is round with curved edges, and is polished smooth.
