Liu Sijia will be making her first appearance at the top level of competitive curling when she skips Team China in Saint John, March 15-23 for the 2014 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship, presented by Booster Juice.
For someone who first took to the game less than a dozen years ago, Bingyu Wang has had a tremendous run of success on curling’s world stage. In 2008 at the Ford World Women’s Curling Championship in Vernon, B.C., she led China to a round-robin record of 9-2 and a silver medal finish. A year later in Gangneung, South Korea, she went one better, finishing preliminary play with a record of 10-1 and capping things off with an 8-6 victory over Sweden’s Anette Norberg in the gold medal game.
The field for the 2012 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship, which will be contested at Lethbridge, Alberta’s Enmax Centre from March 17-25, is already starting to take shape after the conclusion of play at the Pacific-Asia Curling Championships.
It was 2001 when Bingyu Wang first picked up a curling stone… but it certainly didn’t take the young Chinese skip long to pick up the game.
Team World will be coming to the 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling – Jan 12 – 15 in the Langley Events Centre – with their sights set on avenging the loss to Team North America at last year’s competition.
