“Hello my name is…” is a series dedicated to learning more about some of Canada’s top winter athletes ahead of PyeongChang 2018.
Shannon Szabados won Olympic gold at both Sochi 2014 and Vancouver 2010. She was the first female hockey player in the Southern Professional Hockey League and the first woman to record a shutout in a men’s professional league.
