Greg Drummond established himself as one of Scotland’s finest curlers of the past decade before moving into coaching as part of British Curling’s performance programme team in 2018.
As an Olympic and two-time World Championship finalist, he is also a four-time Scottish champion and, having previously worked in public sector finance, he combined his playing career with studying for a BA in Business and Enterprise in Sport at Edinburgh Napier University, graduating in 2018.
On moving into coaching he initially specialised in the newest Olympic discipline of mixed doubles, enjoying success with Gina Aitken and Scott Andrews which included a poignant return to Sochi in 2018 where the pair won an international title at the venue in which Drummond and Andrews had won their Olympic medal along with Michael Goodfellow and David Murdoch. He also coached English Champions Anna and Ben Fowler when they topped their qualifying pool to reach the play-offs at the World Mixed Doubles Championships in 2019.
Following British Curling’s change of strategy that now sees all of the programme’s athletes encouraged to compete in mixed doubles, Drummond’s expertise in that discipline remains invaluable and he is coaching the Scotland pairing of Jen Dodds and Bruce Mouat at the 2021 World Mixed Doubles Championships.
Having guided Team Whyte to bronze medal wins at both the World Junior Championships and the World University Games in 2019, he became coach of Grand Slam winners Team Paterson in 2019/20.
Away from the ice Drummond is a keen golfer and is a member of Stirling Golf Club, an interest he shares with his fiancée Vicky Wright, who plays third for Team Muirhead.
