A five year member of the Senior National Team, Jones has progressively improved on the WC circuit leading up to this season, placing in the top-30 several times last year. Jones qualified for this year’s Olympic Team with a 6th place finish in the team sprint (along with Sara Renner) at the Liberec WChs. Jones has had most of her best finishes in the sprint distance, and although she will keep her main focus on the sprints during this season, she will also be competing in many of the middle-distance races.
Jones is currently in Scandinavia and will race the WC until Christmas, when she will return to Ottawa to be with family. Afterward she will race Nor-Ams until the beginning of February, at which time she will head to Canmore to race the WC’s and prepare for the Olympic Games.
Of her season goals, Jones says, “I’d like to consistently be in the heats in sprints, and learn as much as possible from every race I enter.”
