Taking part in their first competition since the outbreak of the COVID pandemic, Hewitt and Gill were one of 20 teams at the event, with the top seven nations achieving direct qualification to the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing.
Team Australia finished its Group A Round Robin with a record of 3 wins and 6 losses, missing out on advancing to the playoff stage.
The highlight was no doubt the 3-point win over curling powerhouse, Canada, with Hewitt and Gill emerging victorious 8-5.
Wins were also recorded against Hungary and Spain.
The event was won by Scotland, who defeated Norway in the final 9-7.
Hewitt and Gill have one last chance to qualify for Beijing later this year at the Olympic Qualification Event, with the top two teams securing a place in the Olympic field. One of the ten places in the Olympic field will be taken up by China, who is already guaranteed a place as host nation.
