Curling’s Great Scot is Coming to Penticton!

At just 22 years of age, Scotland’s Eve Muirhead has already established a place as one of the most formidable competitors on the international curling scene.  And she’ll be displaying her talents as part of Team World for the 2013 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling in Penticton.

Before moving up to the highest echelon of the sport, Muirhead won four gold medals at the World Junior Women’s Curling Championship, three times as the skip of the Scottish team. In five appearances at the European Curling Championships she has won a gold medal and two silvers.  The gold came in the 2011 championships.  Defending the title at the recent European Championships in Karlsbad, Sweden, Muirhead lost the final in an extra-end to Russia’s Anna Sidarova… but it still qualified the team for the 2013 World Women’s Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia. She has represented Scotland at the Ford World Women’s Curling Championship four times, winning silver in 2010, and skipped Great Britain’s team at the 2010 Olympic Games. Muirhead will be on the ice January 10-13 in Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre with teammates Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton as Team World takes on Team North America in the World Financial Group Continental Cup. “You Gotta Be There” for the live experience of championship curling featuring the best shooters in the game.  Great seats are still available in the South Okanagan Events Centre.  Get yours now by clicking here.
