Who says you need snow and ice to get into the Winter Olympic spirit?

Brazilian brothers Paulo and Alberto showed that when it comes to curling, the most important ingredient is passion.

The brothers decided to recreate the current Winter Olympics at their Brazilian home despite the lack of snow and ice.

Inspired by the Sochi Olympics, the pair improvised their own version of the curling event using a kettle, a squeegee and a rope. Paulo pulled the kettle using a rope while Alberto recreated the action usually seen on the ice.
