The mixed doubles curling duo of Laura Walker and Kirk Muyres have a sizable and loyal following given Muyres home grown roots and the team’s dedication to sporting excellence. Their journey continues starting on the weekend with the National Championships from March 17-22 in Fredericton.  

In a release, the front runners say, “We are super excited to get rolling and test ourselves against the best teams in the country.” 

One of their stated goals has been to win the world championship for Canada in the mixed doubles discipline. First, there’s the national title to grasp which gets them into the World Championship in Ostersund, Sweden from April 20-27.  

A full slate of 32 teams will be in the mix representing every province and territory, including the 14 top ranked teams from this season’s competitions and the top four finishers from last year’s Nationals.  

Laura and Kirk say they are confident in the on and off-ice preparations and are eager to take on what’s sure to be a stiff field. The pair is proud to have “unofficially” qualified for the Olympic Trials coming up in December. With the points accumulated through events to this point in the season based on their strong performance, there’s slim chance they can be overtaken on points.
