It is hard for anyone's to fill in the legacy of the former Olympic Gold Medalist. But when Eve Muirhead became youngest to win Women's Curling Championship in 2013, she proved to be the larger than life character.
Scottish Curler Eve is a bronze medal winner of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Following her father’s professional footstep, The "Ice Maiden" is also famous for her win in European Championship in 2011 in Moscow.
Busy Career, Dedicates Life To Curling
The 28-year-old Scottish player is currently single. Her busy schedules to practice and play Curling have refrained her to get married at least for now. While talking about her relationship status, Eve reportedly explained that she is afraid of having an affair and has most of her to Curling.
After winning the bronze medal at the 2014's winter Olympics, she said that she is single but hinted that she is open for love. As she spoke,
"I am still single and I guess, now the busy time is over, I am going to take time off and enjoy myself."
As of now, she is yet to reveal about her dream boyfriend. Also known as Ice Maiden, she said in 2018 that she had dedicated her life to curling. She also said that she doesn't have time for relationships.
Family Of A Professional Curler; Owns A Sheep Farm
Eve’s father, Gordon Muirhead was a former international Curler, who won a gold medal at the 1994 European Cycling Championship. Just like the two, Eve’s brothers, Thomas and Glen are also a professional Curler. All the three children have been inspired by their father from his successful career and were the trio curler in the 2018 Winter Pyeongchang Olympics.
Eve on her 2018 interview for the Telegraph magazine revealed that she and her two siblings were destined to follow their dad’s professional career. She also told that her mother, Lin Muirhead was their taxi service and if she could not pick or drop them, then they used to manage the transportation all by themselves.
The Curler also further revealed that their parents did not even pressurize them about career choices. All the three siblings chose a decision to participate in the sports; their father left his legacy. Eve and her two brothers were also photographed taking a selfie when they were declared as the representative of Great Britain in 2018 Winter Olympic.

Eve had also posted a birthday greeting for her mom, Lin on her IG account on 10 March 2017. Anna was greeted by a homemade cake where the family also together ate family dinner.
Besides Curling, the Muirhead family have a sheep farm at Blair Atholl in Perthshire. Both of her sibling brothers work on the farm but left the poultry farming to concentrate in their 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Hip Injury & More About Her Previous Illness
Eve had undergone a keyhole hip surgery in March 2018 to reduce her injury complications. She opted for her treatment after the end of Winter Olympic in 2018 and was positive about her physical and mental health once she returns to the podium.
Back in 2015, Eve had a severe genetic autoimmune illness called Coeliac. The athlete had months of painful bloating and stomachache with drastic weight loss and extreme fatigue.
However, after cutting gluten from her diet, she felt physically and mentally stronger after the ailment of the illness.
The Scottish player was born on 22 April 1990 in Perth and grew up in Blair Atholl, Scotland as per wiki. Eve stands at the height of 1.73 m (5’ 8”) and belongs to a white ethnicity.
The athlete has sparkling eyes, which dumbstruck her viewers with her one single stage. Independent Magazine wrote that it is impossible for people not to take notice of her vibrant piercing shade of blue eyes and is one of the best it can get without colored contact lenses.
Eve had reportedly received two scholarships from American universities on 14 June 2010, which she missed a golden opportunity to become a professional golfer.
