BEI­JING — Rachel Ho­man and Team Canada im­proved to 3-0 at the 2017 world women’s curl­ing cham­pi­onship.

Ho­man and her Ot­tawa four­some had a 10-9 ex­tra-end win over Rus­sia Sun­day in their third draw of the 12-na­tion tour­na­ment.

“Just barely (3-0),” Ho­man said af­ter the game. “It was a good long grind by my team. Ev­ery day we’re get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter at get­ting over the jet lag, and hope­fully we keep learn­ing the ice.”

The 27-year-old skip is joined by third Emma Miskew, sec­ond Joanne Court­ney and lead Lisa Wea­gle, along with Ch­eryl Kre­vi­azuk.

The Cana­dian squad started the tour­na­ment with vic­to­ries over China and Ger­many on the open­ing day.

Ho­man has yet to win a world ti­tle af­ter tak­ing bronze and sil­ver in two pre­vi­ous ap­pear­ances.

She and her crew won the Cana­dian ti­tle in Fe­bru­ary with an 8-6 vic­tory in an ex­tra end over Man­i­toba’s Michelle En­glot, earn­ing her a third ap­pear­ance at the world cham­pi­onship.

Last year Canada was rep­re­sented by Cal­gary skip Chelsea Carey. Her four­some had to set­tle for fourth place af­ter drop­ping the bronze-medal draw against Rus­sia. al­ter­nate
