Jennifer Jones's curling team from Winnipeg was dominant in a 9-2 triumph over China's Bingyu Wang, the 2009 world champion.

In the second end, team Canada went up 2-0 when Jones successfully drew a Canadian stone in behind a guard, and then in the third end Canadian third Kaitlyn Lawes delivered a double takeout that set up a Canadian stolen point when Wang racked off a Canadian stone in the twelve foot. Then in the fifth end, Jones had a double take out and a draw for two more points to put the Canadians up by a commanding 6-1 score.

Team Canada will now play another tough opponent in Margaretha Sigfridssion of Sweden, a four-time World Championship silver medallist, Monday evening at 10:00 p.m. (CBC). Sigfridsson delivered a significant 6-4 victory over reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Great Britain.
