Winnipeg's Ice Queen, Mary Rose Thacker



My column in today's Winnipeg Free Press is about Winnipeg's Mary Rose Thacker.

Thacker began skating at the age of three and was the star member of the Winnipeg Winter Club figure skating club. By the late 1930s, she was winning national and North American figure skating championships.

Sadly, as with many athletes of her generation, World War II dashed her chances of international glory.
