SYDNEY, N.S. – Canada’s Rachel Homan defeated Japan’s Miyu Ueno 7-2 to remain unbeaten at the world women’s curling championship.

Homan and her team of Tracy Fleury, Emma Miskew and Sarah Wilkes scored three in the eighth end en route to their seventh straight round-robin victory.

The Ottawa-based foursome has won 23 games in a row overall.

Canada will next play Turkey’s Dilsat Yildiz in the evening draw at Centre 200.

The top six teams at the end of round-robin play Friday will advance to the weekend playoffs.

Canada’s last women’s world title came in 2018 when Jennifer Jones was victorious in North Bay, Ont. Homan won gold in her last world championship appearance in 2017 at Beijing.
