The curling event at the 1924 Winter Olympics was contested only by men. It is the first curling event in Olympic history.

In February 2006, a few days before the start of the 2006 Winter Olympics, the International Olympic Committee ruled that the curling medals were part of the official Olympic programme in 1924, and not a demonstration event as many authoritative sources had previously claimed (although the IOC itself had never done so). This official confirmation was the culmination of an investigative campaign begun by the Glasgow-based newspaper The Herald,[1] on behalf of the families of the eight Scots who won the first curling gold medals. The winning team was selected by the Royal Caledonian Curling Club, Perth, the mother club of curling.

A peculiarity of the competition is that Great Britain and Ireland's Major D. G. Astley played for Sweden when they overcame France in the play-off. The IOC records that he received a silver medal along with the Swedes, and also a gold medal, as part of the GB and I team. If the official IOC records are correct, then Astley is the only person to have received both a gold and a silver medal in the same Olympic event, and one of the few people to have won an Olympic medal for different nations.
