BRUCE MOUAT is just three weeks from one of the biggest weeks of his career.

At the end of this month, the World Curling Championships will kick off in Glasgow and it presents the opportunity for Mouat to have a week he will never forget.

The 25-year-old is in the form of his life, with Mouat describing his Scottish Championship victory last month as “one of the best events I’ve ever played” and so such good form bodes well for the World Championships in a few weeks time.

With three weeks to go, there is little in terms of major changes that can be made by Mouat and his rink of Bobby Lammie, Hammy MacMillan and Grant Hardie but he is confident that minor tweaks is all that is required to make sure they are at their best when they begin their campaign at the Emirates Arena.

“Hopefully the form we’ve had in the last four or five events will continue,” said the skip.

“How I played at the Scottish Championships exceeded my own expectations. I was really solid and my team played really well too so we’re excited to see how we can do come the Worlds.

“It’s coming round really fast but we’re working had to make sure we’re fully prepared for when the event starts.

“We’ll be preparing for this one the same way we prepare for every World Championships – we’ll spend the next three weeks fine-tuning and we’ll be working to make sure we can compete for the full week and make sure we’re in the right mindset.”

Mouat and his rink are rink are currently ranked third in the world and with a bronze medal already to their name from the 2018 World Championships, as well as European gold from that same year, expectations are high for the Scots.

While Mouat knows his side will need to hit top form if they reach the latter stages of the event, the gruelling schedule will see each team play twelve games in the preliminary stages alone and so the Edinburgh man knows he and his rink are likely to need to focus on grinding out results at some point throughout the week.

“Consistency is so important – if we can get some consistency early on in the week, we can build some momentum and that’s vital with so many games,” he said.

“We’ve worked really hard in the past few months to try and get that consistency and we feel like we’re at a point now where we don’t have many bad games.

“A huge part of it is learning how to win when you’re not playing your best because you’re not going to be able to be able to play brilliantly every single time.

“It’s getting those small margins right so you can turn potential losses into wins.”

These World Championships will be Mouat’s third appearance at the event but he has yet to tick off his biggest goal; an Olympic medal. The Winter Olympics in 2022 are already approaching fast and Mouat admits he is desperate to complete the set of major championship medals with silverware in Beijing in two years time.

And while Olympic silverware may be his ultimate goal, there would be no better way to set themselves up for their Olympic tilt than winning a world title on home ice.

“I feel like my best is still to come – we’re young and we’ve done well but we still haven’t achieved our main goal which is an Olympic medal,” he said.

“I really hope that we can make it to the Olympics in a couple of years and can perform well there and a gold medal in Glasgow would be a nice stepping-stone. It would be a dream come true to win a gold medal at the World Championships and for it to happen in Glasgow would be unbelievable, I don’t think I’d be able to put into words how I’d feel if that happened.”
