SB Nation 2014 Olympics Preview

The 2014 Winter Olympic curling events got underway on Monday with the first round of qualification matches. On Tuesday, things pick up further with a combined 12 matches. The women get the most attention this day, with two sessions of round robin events set to take place. South Korea and Japan are the only teams yet to play, and they'll face off against each other in their first Olympic matches. The USA takes on both Russia and China, hoping to improve after losing to Switzerland, 7-4. Canada had a dominating 9-2 win over China but will have a tough test against the Swedes, who beat Great Britain 6-4.

On the men's side, there is only one round robin session on Tuesday's schedule. The Norwegians, famous for their flashy pants, beat the Americans 7-4 and will take on a Russian team reeling from two straight losses. Team USA gets another shot at a win when it faces China, who beat Denmark 7-4 on Sunday. The American curling team has improved in recent years, but it still has a ways to go if it wants to join the Canadians and Europeans among the world's best.

Here is Tuesday's complete schedule (all times are ET):

12 a.m. - Women's round robin, session 2

South Korea vs. Japan, Russia vs. USA, Switzerland vs. Denmark, Sweden vs. Canada
