He added another Grey Cup title with Toronto as a coach.

Jones led Canada to world women's curling titles in 2001 and 2004 and skipped her Halifax rink to six Canadian women's championships.

Paralympian Stephanie Dixon, cross-country skier and kayaker Sue Holloway and speedskater Annie Perreault are the other athlete inductees.
