Biography / Biographie:

Connie Laliberte has been at the top of the accomplishment list of women’s curling in Canada for 20 years. Laliberte made her first appearance at the Canadian women’s curling championship in 1980 as lead for Donna Brownridge’s Manitoba team and returned in 1984 as skip of the Manitoba foursome that captured the Scott Tournament of Hearts and women’s world championship.

She won the Canadian crown again in 1992, but struggling with the new four rock rule at the world championship, had to settle for a disappointing third place finish.

Laliberte won her third Canadian women’s title in 1995 and came up just short of the world gold medal, losing to Sweden’s Elisabet Gustafson in an extra end. She has appeared in 11 national championships, nine at the women’s level and two at the juniors.
