Shelley-Ann Brown (Canada), bobsleigh, silver in 2010

Ontario’s Shelley-Ann Brown is the second champion of Jamaican lineage on this list. How curious. Two Winter Games medalists from one of the most tropical places on the planet. To be fair, Brown’s bloodline may bring 80 degree days and fresh seafood to mind but she was born and raised in the North. She started off in track and field then ended up taking her talents over to bobsledding. At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Brown earned a silver medal as part of a two-woman team.
