Athletes to watch for shallow reasons: Kimi Zakreski

“God damn you half-Japanese girls, do it to me everytime.”

— Weezer (back when they were good)


You’re looking at Alpine snowboarder Kimiko Zakreski. Kimi was born in St. Albert, but now calls Calgary home, making her a more attractive version of Jarome Iginla.

As you can see from the name, she’s part Japanese and part Polish, so her favourite food is sushi and perogies (that’s from her bio, it’s not me stereotyping).

While some might know Kimi for her respectable results on the World Cup circuit, including a silver and a top 16 overall world ranking, more people know her as the girl from Over the Bolts who has to listen to teammate Michael Lambert whine about everything.

If you want to see Kimi in action, I highly recommend catching her on OTB, which is a snowboard reality show kind of like Peak Season, except the stars are attractive and can actually ride.
