Team Bio

Silvana Tirinzoni made history by winning the first-ever Tour Challenge Tier 1 women’s championship. Down by three points with two ends to go in the final against Rachel Homan, Tirinzoni capped a stunning comeback scoring two in the seventh and stealing a pair in the eighth to win 6-5. The title victory was also a first by a team from Switzerland in the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling.

Tirinzoni and second Esther Neuenschwander have represented Switzerland three times at the world championship as well as the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Team Tirinzoni retooled its roster for 2018 bringing in former skips Alina Pätz and Melanie Barbezat. Pätz served as the alternate for Switzerland, skipped by Mirjam Ott, at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. She captured the world championship in 2012 while with Ott and also skipped her own squad to the title in 2015.
