Are they really Athletes in the Winter Olympics

I'm watching the Olympics and am thinking I can be a Curler. I know it is a sport, ipso facto it's in the Olympics so it must be a sport, but do you think the players are true athletes? I don't see too many 6-packs. What am I missing? How is this any different really than horseshoes? or Botchiball? Maybe it's some kind of strategy thing?

Pete Sheperd the goof who used to be on EEI was dissing Curling after the Turino games. A local curling crew offered to let him try it. Not too shockingly Pete the Meat came out looking like an idiot.
Apparently it's much harder than it looks. I gather there's plenty of strategy too it.
