Along with her final win in Beijing, Muirhead is also a four-time Olympian. Muirhead represented the country of Great Britain at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver 2010, Sochi 2014, Pyeongchang 2018, and Beijing 2022. Muihead was the flag bearer at the Opening Ceremony in the last one.
She became the youngest-ever skip, male or female, to win an Olympic medal in Sochi. On August 11, 2022, she officially announced her retirement.
