Since its recent Olympic curling triumph, Team Jones has had its name up in lights — and that name will now adorn a St. Vital street.


The city has announced it will recognize Team Jones with an honorary street in southeast Winnipeg. Regal Avenue, the street where St. Vital Curling Club is located, will also be known as Team Jones Way.


The team — which consists of Jennifer Jones (skip), Kaitlyn Lawes (third), Jill Officer (second), Dawn McEwen (lead), Kirsten Wall (alternate) and coach Janet Arnott — went undefeated at the recent 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, becoming the first women’s curling team in Olympic history to achieve a perfect record.


"Winnipeggers have always been extremely supportive of Team Jones and are very proud of the team’s record-breaking Olympic achievement," Mayor Sam Katz said in a news release. "All of the members of the team are ambassadors for Winnipeg and the sport of curling and it is fitting to honour them with Team Jones Way."


Officials say a ceremony to unveil Team Jones Way will be held at a later date.
