In her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, Dawn McEwen was part of the first Canadian women’s curling team to win gold since Nagano 1998. The team posted a perfect 11-0 record en route to the title, making them the first women’s curling team to ever go undefeated in Olympic competition. McEwen was the top lead in the tournament, curling at 92 per cent, including a near perfect 99 per cent in the gold medal game.
