Two Olympians and stars of Manitoba’s curling scene are being inducted into the Manitoba Curling Hall of Fame.

Jennifer Jones and Jill Officer were among the names revealed Wednesday by Curl Manitoba. The two won gold for Canada with their rink at the Sochi Olympics in 2014.

Joining them is builder Cindy Maddock, curler Peter Nicholls, and Team Hal Tanasichuk (1977 Canadian Mixed Champions) and Team Norm Houck (1987 Canadian Senior Champions).

The inductees will be honoured during a ceremony and dinner May 6 at Canad Inns Polo Park. Tickets are available by contacting Curl Manitoba for $100 each or $720 for a table of eight.
