Karen Stemmle

Skiing, Sarajevo

Yellow and pink striped race suit made specifically for Team Canada for the 1984 Olympics where Stemmle wore it. Stemmle recalls the original Canadian suit was white and red, representing Canada, but the white was too hard to see against the snow so the colours were changed to yellow and red, until Descente Ski Wear Company wanted to design the racing suit for the Olympics and changed the colour to yellow and pink.
