The round-robin portion of the curling tournaments are in the books at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and the Canadian women’s team has made Olympic history. Canadian skip Jennifer Jones and her teammates have become the first women’s curling team to go unbeaten in the round-robin leg following their win over South Korea on Monday.

“It feels unbelievable,” Jones said in a press release from Team Canada. “In my opinion, this is one of the toughest fields that has ever been assembled for women’s curling.

“To go through undefeated, and to go into the Olympic record books, is pretty awesome.”

Canada finished the round with a 9-0 record to advance to the semifinals where they will take on Great Britain.

The other semifinal will be between Sweden and Switzerland.
