The Alberta skip is hoping to build on last season’s momentum when her team rolls in to Moose Jaw November 28-December 2 for the 2012 Capital One Canada Cup of Curling in Mosaic Place. The success at the 2012 Scotties and Ford World Women’s came with a precious bonus for Nedohin and teammates Beth Iskiw, Jessica Mair and Laine Peters… enough Canadian Team Ranking System points to qualify for the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings – the Canadian Curling Trials. It makes them one of only four teams that have earned the right to compete in the showdown that will determine our country’s representatives in Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Olympic Games. Nedohin made her presence known on the competitive scene in 1996 when she led her team to the top of the podium in both the Canadian and World junior women’s curling championships. Playing third for Cathy King in the 2008 season, she helped the Albertans win the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and bronze at the Ford World Women’s.  In 2009 she moved on to skip her way to the silver medal at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. “You Gotta Be There” when the best shooters in the country face off in Mosaic Place for the 2012 Capital One Canada Cup.  Great seats for all the excitement of live championship curling are available right now by clicking here.
