Vegreville's Val 'Roaring' for a Chance to Represent Canada

The ‘2017 Tim Horton’s Roar of the Rings’ starts tomorrow and Vegreville’s Val is hoping hers will be the last rink standing ...

Val Sweeting along with Third Lori Olson-Johns, Second Dana Ferguson and Lead Rachel Brown are in Ottawa where over the 9 day tournament they’ll face the best this country has to offer in a battle to represent Canada at the Olympics in February.   

Sweeting says while she certainly wanted to win every event prior to the Roar of the Rings this season, she also used them to build her game heading into the Olympic Qualifying event.

Sweeting and Company are in for a challenge right out of the gate.

They’ll take on Winnipeg’s Jen Jones Saturday at 5:00pm (MST).

Jones won this event four years ago and went on to earn Gold for Canada at the Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
