Sandra Jenkins brings 34 years of curling experience with her to Turin as the alternate on Shannon Kleibrink's rink. Although she may not see the ice, her presence will be vital as she continues to help Kleibrink and the team's coach, Daryl Nixon, with strategy.

Additionally, as a respected player in the sport, she'll be able to help Team Kleibrink's younger curlers, Amy Nixon and Christine Keshen, should they become overwhelmed by the magnitude of the event.

Aside from being a strong strategist, Jenkins is also a solid curler. She has represented Alberta at the Tournament of Hearts on three occasions (1982, 1983, 1993) and at the Canadian Mixed Championships twice (1987, 2002).

When not curling, Jenkins enjoys playing golf and spending time with her husband Randy and two children Jared and Janessa in her adopted province of British Columbia.

Kelibrink's rink is a good bet to win gold in Turin. Their awesome victory over Kelly Scott at the Olympic qualifier was especially satisfying for Kleibrink. Back in 1997, Kleibrink lost out on the opportunity to represent Canada at the 1998 Nagano Games when her team was beaten by Saskatchewan's Sandra Schmirler.
