Curling - women's team captain

Rhona Martin proved the British Olympic team selectors right after guiding her squad to gold medal glory in Salt Lake City.

The housewife and mother of two from Greenacres club, just outside Glasgow, had gained national and international accolades in the run-up to the Games.

She won a silver at the 1998 European championships and was named Scottish Ladies champion in 2000.

Martin will also be pleased to have fully recovered from knee surgery that she underwent at the beginning of 2001.

She also achieved a fourth place with her current line-up at the 2000 World Championships in Braehead, Glasgow where she beat Kelley Law of Canada in the round-robin but lost to her in the semi-final.

She has recently taken up a part-time role as a professional curling instructor at the Greenacres club as the sport tries to make itself more popular.
