She is only 22 years of age but she has clearly captured the attention of the curling world. She’s a four-time world junior champion, the 2010 world silver medallist, and she made her first Olympic appearance as the skip of team Great Britain at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. She golfs. She plays the bagpipes. Search on YouTube and she’ll appear in more clips than you can count on all your fingers and toes.
