Kelsey Rocque's Edmonton rink is world junior curling champion. 

Rocque skipped Canada to a 6-4 victory over Korea in the gold-medal game at the world junior curling championships in Flims, Switzerland, on Wednesday.

It marked Canada's first women's crown since Marliese Miller's foursome captured gold in 2003, also in Flims. 

Rocque's team of third Keely Brown, second Taylor McDonald, lead Claire Tully and alternate Alison Kotylak earned a bye into the final by edging the same Korean rink, skipped by Kyeong-Ae Kim, 7-6 in Monday's 1-2 playoff.
