On the weekend, XC Ottawa's Sheila Kealey was honored as the first inductee into the “Gatineau Loppet Trail of Legends” Hall of Fame, and is CBC Radio-Canada/LeDroit personality of the week in recognition of this award.

The new Award is to honour individuals or organizations that have marked the event or contributed significantly to the development of cross-country skiing. Sheila was honoured for promoting cross country skiing, and both the number of times she has participated in the Gatineau Loppet and for her outstanding results over the years. After this weekend's races, Sheila has finished among the top 4 women in the Gatineau Loppet event 16 times.

You can watch or listen to Sheila practice her French with CBC Radio-Canada, or if you want to practice your French you can read about it in LeDroit.
