Robert (Bob) McPherson started playing wheelchair curling in March 2007 and immediately took to the sport before eventually making his international debut at the 2013 World Championships in Sochi where the team finished sixth.

On his Paralympic debut at Sochi 2014, Bob was part of the team that beat China to claim bronze.

Bob, who likes to listen to heavy rock and punk music as part of his pre-game ritual, has been a key part of the Scotland team ever since.

In 2017 he helped the team to World Championship bronze medal in PyeongChang, which remarkably represented his first podium finish at that level.

Bob competed at his second Paralympic Games at PyeongChang 2018 but the team were unable to progress to the playoffs.
