Sportsnet – Canada’s leader in high definition live-events – launched a campaign, encouraging viewers to logon to their website to cast their votes for Canada’s Hottest Athletes.
Hailing from Calgary, Canadian snowboarder Kimiko Zakreski is ranked 9th in the list, however she’s #1 in our books! We had the pleasure of shooting Kimi this past summer and really enjoyed getting to know the girl behind the strong, athletic persona.
Kimi won her first career World Cup medal (silver) in December, 2008 and was ranked 18th in the parallel giant slalom at the 2009 World Championships. She’s ranked 16th overall in the 2008-09 World Cup alpine snowboard standings. All this and beauty to match!
Watch for Kimi competing for Canada on home turf during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.
