Biography / Biographie:
Colleen P. Jones is best known as the skip of two women’s world championship teams and six Scotties Tournament of Hearts, including an unprecedented four titles in a row and a record 138 wins as a skip.
In 1982, she became the youngest skip, at age 22, ever to win the Canadian women’s curling championship but career, marriage and a family slowed down her competitive curling.
In 1999, Jones won the Canadian curling title for the second time. The team repeated this in 2001 and they went on to win the World Curling Championship in Lausanne, Switzerland. They followed this up with another Canadian championship in 2002 and then won it for a record-setting fifth time at the 2004 Scott Tournament of Hearts. This made Jones the first skip to win four straight Canadian titles. From there the team went on to win their second World Curling Championship.
