Murdoch to lead curlers at Winter Olympics

Scotland's David Murdoch has been selected to skip the Great Britain rink at this year's Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The 35-year-old from Lockerbie has led Team GB's two previous medal attempts at the Games in Turin and Vancouver and he will be joined by Tom Brewster, Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow.

Murdoch skipped the side to bronze and the World Championships in March and says they hope to add to their haul in Russia.

"It's extremely inspiring to be part of such a promising team.

"We will go to Sochi believing in ourselves.

"Having met most of the Team GB athletes in the mix for Sochi, I know every one of us is giving our final preparations everything we have."

– David Murdoch
