Winnipeg’s very own Shannon Rempel has made it on The Sun’s Top 10 List of Winter Sports Babes. The Sun, which should not be confused with The Winnipeg Sun, is a UK-based tabloid. US-based Maxim magazine did a similar feature for the summer Olympics in Beijing.
Shannon Rempel was born and raised in Winnipeg but now, like many other Winnipegers, currently resides in Calgary. Shannon is at her second Olympics appearance in Vancouver competing in the 500m, 1000m, and 1500m speed skating competitions. She won a silver medal in the team pursuit event at the 2006 Winter Games.
Winnipegers can watch Shannon in her first race of the 2010 Olympics on Tuesday, February 16 at 3:00pm. It will be Race 1 of 2 for the Women’s 500m speed skate.
