Jones, Laing stumble in world mixed doubles semis3 minute read Friday, Apr. 28, 2023
Jennifer Jones has fallen short in her bid for another curling world title.
The Winnipeg product and her husband, Brent Laing, lost 6-2 to an American duo early Friday in the semifinals of the 2023 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in South Korea.
Cory Thiesse and Korey Dropkin of the United States stole crucial single point in the first and sixth ends, and then a crushing two in the seventh to end Canada’s gold-medal hopes.
Jones — a two-time world champion and 2014 Olympic champion in women’s four-player curling — and Laing, who make their home in Horseshoe Valley, Ont., will take on Norway’s Martine Roenning and Mathias Braenden in the bronze-medal game (8 p.m. Friday CT).
