“I started to ski at the age of five, here in Cyprus,” Dinos reveals. “I come from a pretty sporty background!” – both his parents are ski-iers; his father the President of the Cyprus Ski Association – “and this was a hobby that gave me the chance to be close to the snow and to nature – two things I love.”

Cyprus doesn't lend itself to many winter sports but yes curling could be done there at a reasonable cost. Would there be a interest in it though.

...there are ice rinks, and organised hockey already.

It would not surprise me if Curling was enjoyed for the same reasons; it's fun!

Whether that justifies slagging-off the rest of the family is a different matter....

Good luck to Dinos Jr in the Ski-ing.

As dogsh** as we are at Winter Olympics given our geography.
At least we're represented.
