Olympic curler Eve Muirhead (pictured above) is intu Braehead’s very own Curling Ambassador. The Scotland Skip successfully led her team to victory at the 2013 World Championships in Riga as well as the 2017 European Championships in St. Gallen, Switzerland and has been known to pop in to the regular Saturday Sweep at Braehead.
“The image of curling has changed a lot since I first started playing as a nine-year-old.
I’m sure a lot of people think curling is for an older generation – but nothing could be further from the truth and nowadays there are a lot of younger people taking up the sport.
Eve continues: “Curling is cool and it’s really quite fun. It’s a sport that can get you fit too, especially when you are throwing a 44-pound granite stone up a sheet of ice!”
