Aged just 19, Eve Muirhead skipped the Team GB women’s curling team to a seventh place finish at her debut Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver 2010.
She also played the role of skip at the 2013 World Championships in Riga, Latvia, where the rink finished in the gold medal position.
Her final throw of the World Championships knocked out the last Swedish stone to secure a 6-5 win and avenge two earlier losses to the Swedes earlier in the tournament. The title was her fifth on the world stage having won the junior championships four times in a five year period from 2007-2011.
Muirhead began curling at the age of nine, with family success going back to her Father Gordon. In 199, Gordon won the world men’s title as alternate for the triumphant Scottish rink and competed at the 1992 Olympic Winter Games in Albertville, France.
