Officer, a Winnipeg native, is the second for the gold-medal-winning Olympic curling team skipped by Jennifer Jones. They have been playing together, on and off, since they were 15. During the recent Sochi Winter Olympics the Women's Curling team set a new Olympic record by becoming the first female team to go undefeated all the way to the gold medal match.
