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 also called – on the ice at Brae­head in Glas­gow and reck­ons the wacky spin-off from real curl­ing could catch on.

Eve’s hu­man curl­ing ses­sion helped launch the leisure des­ti­na­tion’s Get Ac­tive win­ter cam­paign.

Hu­man curl­ing works by launch­ing your­self 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 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 Brae­head to get ac­tive and try out all the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties there.”

The pic­ture shows Eve try­ing out hu­man curl­ing at the rink, with the help of ice tech­ni­cian Colin Mouat.
