The Women's Curling World Championship Is Really Intense

Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty ImagesWe were browsing the Getty Images photo database last night when we stumbled upon this gold mine of awesome curling pictures.

They come from the World Women’s Curling Championship that’s currently taking place in Riga, Latvia.

For whatever reason, the tournament has produced some incredible portraits. Perhaps because the athletes are so stationary, the photographer was really able to capture the intensity of the event.

And BOY are these women awesomely intense.
