Career

Irene Schori was relatively unknown outside of Switzerland until she was named to the Swiss Olympic Team. She served as the alternate for Mirjam Ott's team in Vancouver.

Schori has participated in both the 2008 and the 2009 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships with partner Toni Müller, and has taken gold at both of these championships. Schori and Müller were the heavy favorites to win in the 2010 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, but were eliminated by the China in an extra end in the quarterfinals. In an interview post-match, Schori stated that she and Müller would consider not attending next year to give a chance to other Swiss teams.[3]

Schori went to her first World Championships in 2014 with skip Binia Feltscher, and won her first world title after defeating Canada in the final.
