A World Champion and Olympic medallist, Eve Muirhead is a remarkable athlete who was selected to skip the GB curling team at the Vancouver Winter Olympics at the tender age of 19. Billed as the ‘ice queen’ due to her impressive ability to remain calm under pressure, Eve’s work ethic, talent and passion to succeed is what sets her apart. So much so, that she was invited by the International Olympic Committee to be an Athlete Role Model at the 1st Winter Youth Olympic Games in 2012.
Throughout her career to date, Eve has won an impressive 14 gold medals including the 2011 European Championships, 2013 World Championships and 2017 European Championships. She is also a four-time World Junior Champion and eight-time Scottish Champion.
A three-time Olympian, in 2014 she skipped Team Muirhead to win bronze in Sochi - the youngest team to ever take home an Olympic medal. She followed this up by achieving back-to-back Grand Slam wins in 2014 and 2015. In 2019, Eve and her team took home a silver medal at the European Curling Championships in Sweden.
