Kaitlyn-LawesKaitlyn Lawes is headed to her first Olympic Winter Games as a member of the team skipped by one of Canada’s most successful female curlers of the last decade, Jennifer Jones. 

Jill Officer has been playing with Jones since they were junior competitors. In 2007, Dawn McEwen (formerly Askin) joined the team as lead. Together, that trio would win three consecutive Scotties Tournament of Hearts in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The big highlight was winning the world title in 2008. They would go on to finish fourth at the world championships in 2009 before capturing bronze in 2010.

In August 2010, Lawes, a two-time Canadian junior champion skip, joined the team at third. The foursome was runners-up at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in 2011 and 2013 and finished third in 2012.
