Four local rinks heading to Canada Cup

  • Print

WINNIPEG — The fields are set for the 2011 Canada Cup of Curling, and four Winnipeg rinks are included in the draw.

Reigning world champion Jeff Stoughton and four-time Canadian champ Jennifer Jones headline the local entries for the 14-team event (seven on each side), which runs Nov. 30-Dec. 4 in Cranbrook, B.C.

Stoughton qualifies for the Canada Cup thanks to his Tim Hortons Brier title, while Jones earns her invite on the strength of her standing on the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) last season.

Joining the Manitoba contingent is Mike McEwen on the men’s side, and Chelsea Carey in the women’s draw. Both qualified through their CTRS position.

Other notable rinks on the men’s side include defending Canada Cup champ Glenn Howard; 2010 Olympic gold medallist Kevin Martin and 2010 Capital One world champion Kevin Koe. Scotties Tournament of Hearts champion Amber Holland and defending Canada Cup champion Stefanie Lawton are two of the big-name rinks in the women’s draw.

Canada Cup champions automatically qualify for the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials. The winners in that event represent Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
