GB curlers nominated for inaugural Youth Olympic Games

Just a quick postscript to my earlier post about the Youth Olympic Games and to offer congratulations to the four young curlers who are set to be nominated to the British Olympic Association to be the GB team at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games to be held in Innsbruck, January 13-22, 2012.

The athletes are Thomas Muirhead, Duncan Menzies, Angharad Ward and Rachel Hannen.

The nominated Team Leader/Head Coach is Brad Askew.

These names are still to be ratified, and the BOA will announce the whole GB team for the WYOG at the end of November.

Especial congratulations to Angharad who will become the first English curler to wear a GB jersey! Angharad has appeared in Skip Cottage Curling over the past year in this post, and here, and again here. She represented England in the European Junior Challenge in Prague last season, photo here.
