After a week in Swift Current, SK at the World Women’s Curling Championship, Team Canada returned home Monday afternoon.
Skip Jennifer Jones and her teammates won bronze, but were not disappointed with the outcome of their game, despite what the media made it out to be. “To be a four-time Canadian champion, to go to the world championships four times — we’ve done more than I have ever dreamed possible,” Jones told reporters on Sunday.
Jones addressed her remarks in more detail Monday that she made over the weekend regarding the media scrutinizing her game and adding pressure to win gold.
Jones and her team, Cathy Overton-Clapham, Jill Officer and Dawn Askin, defeated Sweden 9-6 in the final. The gals last won gold at the championship back in 2008 when it was held in Vernon, B.C. They’ll head back on the road April 13-18 when they play in the Capital One Players’ Championship in Dawson Creek, B.C.
