Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones has captured curling glory once again, securing a berth at the Beijing winter games in February.

Jones’ St. Vital squad defeated Tracy Fleury’s East St. Paul rink 6-5 in a nail-biter that saw Jones roll slightly too far in the 10th forcing an extra end.

Fleury rubbed a guard on her final throw of the extra end to give Jones a steal of one and the victory.
