Just as the 'standy-uppy' curlers had to register their interest in the Olympic selection process recently, British Curling is now seeking registration of interest from athletes who wish to be considered for the Great Britain Paralympic Curling Squad for the Winter Paralympic Games, Vancouver 2010. An athlete information pack is available which covers the BC selection process, timelines and eligibility for Vancouver 2010. The information packs can be obtained by contacting:
BC Admin Support
Scottish Institute of Sport
Stirling FK9 5PH
Tel: 01786 460105
Only athletes who are eligible for the Great Britain Team and with a genuine aspiration and realistic ability to compete in the medal zone at the Vancouver Winter Paralympic Games 2010 should return a registration of interest.
The closing date for applications is October 20, 2007.
