Kirsten Wall made her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 as the fifth on the team skipped by Jennifer Jones. Wall did not see any game action, but did come home from Russia with an Olympic gold medal. It was the first women’s curling gold medal won by Canada since Nagano 1998. The team also became the first women’s rink to go undefeated in Olympic competition with its 11-0 record.
Wall had played third with the Jones team during the first half of the 2012-13 season while Jones recovered from knee surgery and also took maternity leave.
