Team Jones will once again represent Canada at the Winter Olympics after a thrilling all-Manitoba final at the Canadian Olympic curling trials in Saskatoon on Sunday.

Late misses helped decide the wild and entertaining women's final at Canada's Olympic curling trials in Saskatoon.

Jones stunningly blew a golden opportunity to win the game in the 10th end. However, she escaped with a 6-5 victory when Tracy Fleury hit a guard with her last shot in an extra end.

Jones will now have a chance to earn a second Olympic women's curling gold when she leads Canada at the 2022 Beijing Games.

Fleury was quick to offer praise of the veteran Jones. She later took to Twitter to congratulate the Jones rink saying, "Congratulations to @TeamJJonesCurl on an incredible game, their win and earning the opportunity to wear the (maple leaf) in Beijing. We are fully behind you guys and know you’ll be an amazing representative for @CurlingCanada and #TeamCanada."

Brad Gushue and his team from St. John's will represent Canada after winning a defensive battle on the men's side.

It took extra ends for the Gushue rink to win 4-3.
