Murdoch raring to go from the Olympics sidelines

LOCKERBIE curling coach David Murdoch admits he’s excited for the Winter Olympics challenge as they aim for a trio of Gold medals.

Two-time World champion and Olympic silver medal winning skip Murdoch was appointed as British Curling’s national coach and is now Olympic head coach.

He said: “I think it is really exciting. We have got teams who have delivered consistently at the top and it is exciting to have teams that are very driven and focused towards an Olympic Games.

“There is certainly knowledge and experience about the situations I was in, and if any of those arise then I would like to think I can help them deal with that.

“But you have got to have that passion. From being an athlete to sitting on the sidelines, this is the tougher part now. It is a case of channelling that passion as best you can.”
