i dont think she ever beat nordby either but i might be wrong
Considering that one could say she has never been better than Anette Nordberg (I dont think she even was the year she won Worlds, the only reason she was able to win Worlds is Norberg wasnt there that year), especialy when in addition to kicking Jones and her behind Nordberg regularly produces better results in Worlds and Olympics she is in than Jones does, even past her prime. Yet in the last 5 years Nordberg herself has only occasionaly been the best, yet always better than Jones, another indication Jones has rarely, if ever, been top 2 in the World.
Considering Norberg was something like 8-2 in World or Olympic competition vs Canadian reps from 2005-2011 (aka the so called very best in Canada each year, and that is lower due to 3 major events in a row the Canadian rep lost the round before what would have been a loss to Norberg in the finals or semis in the playoffs) I am sure she would have been just fine having to go through. It would be Jennifer Jones and the rest who would be worse off.
