Jones won curling world championships in 2001 and 2004. In 1982 the Nova Scotian became the youngest skip ever to win a Canadian women’s title before going on to add five more Tournament of Hearts crowns, including four in a row from 2001-2004.
Perreault won short track relay gold at the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, and later won an individual Olympic title in the 500 metres at the 1998 Nagano Games, where the Sherbrooke, Que., native added a relay bronze. Perreault also won four relay world titles.
Holloway appeared in four Olympics, and the Ottawa native became the first woman to appear at both the Summer and Winter Games in the same year when she competed in cross-country skiing and kayaking in 1976.
