British Curling has announced that two-time world wheelchair curling champion and paralympic silver medallist Frank Duffy has been co-opted to the Board of Directors. British Curling, the organisation responsible for the British curling teams at the Vancouver Olympics and Paralympics, has apparently decided to employ a rankings structure for wheelchair curling which will enable curlers to receive technical rankings achieved through competitions. Frank’s remit will be 'to work with the new structure in conjunction with the selection process, which will identify individuals to be included in the British Podium and Development Squads for the Paralympic Games in 2010'.
The job of Head Wheelchair Coach is currently being advertised. Closing date for that position is June 29.
With his considerable experience Frank is certain to be an asset to the BC Board, currently comprising Chris Hildrey (chairman), Derek Brown (performance director), Hew Chalmers, Alan Chalmers and Mike Gillespie.
