Manitoba tuck

The Manitoba tuck is a form of slide in curling. A tuck under is when the curler's front toe is the only part of the slider that comes into contact with the ice. The slide is used almost exclusively by curlers from the province of Manitoba though tuck curlers are also found in nearby regions of Saskatchewan and the US state of North Dakota.[1]

Prominent historical curlers include Jeff Stoughton, Kerry Burtnyk, and Vic Peters.[2] Current curlers include Mike McEwen and his team as well as Ryan Fry.[1]
