Olympian Eve tri­als cool new sport in fit­ness drive

Evening Times - - NEWS - BY LOUISE HOUS­TON

OLYMPIC curler Eve Muir­head is aim­ing to sweep to vic­tory in a fun new sport – hu­man curl­ing.

Eve had a go at hu­man curl­ing – or go-nut­ting as it’s some­times called – on the ice at intu Brae­head and reck­ons the wacky spin-off from real curl­ing could catch on.

The 28-year-old has won Olympic, World and Euro­pean medals in a suc­cess­ful curl­ing ca­reer.

Eve couldn’t wait to try hu­man curl­ing and quickly mas­tered the tech­nique of launch­ing her­self up the ice on top of an in­flat­able snow tube aim­ing for the house, or tar­get as you would with a real curl­ing stone.

Eve is the Curl­ing Am­bas­sador at the curl­ing rink at intu Brae­head and her hu­man curl­ing ses­sion helped launch the leisure des­ti­na­tion’s Get Ac­tive win­ter cam­paign.

Eve said: “I’ve never tried hu­man curl­ing be­fore, but it was really a lot of fun.

“It’s al­most as much fun as a real game of curl­ing!

“Ev­ery­one should come along to intu Brae­head to get ac­tive and try out all the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties there.”

David Lyon, mar­ket­ing man­ager for intu Brae­head said: “This is the time of year peo­ple de­cide to get ac­tive and we’ve plenty for them to do here with lots of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

“Eve was try­ing out the hu­man curl­ing for a bit of fun, but if there are enough peo­ple who want to be hu­man curlers, we’ll cer­tainly aim at putting on spe­cial ses­sions for them.”
