No Limits: The Amazing Life Story of Rhona and Rhoda Wurtele, Canada’s Olympian Skiing Pioneers
Abstract
Montrealers and twin sisters Rhona and Rhoda Wurtele (b. 1922) were Canadian women's skiing pioneers and champions of the 1940s and 1950s. They were Canada's first official women's Olympic alpine ski team and competed in Canada and the United States from 1942 to 1948 representing the Montreal Penguin Ski Club. The Penguin Ski Club was the first ski club to be founded in Canada by women for women only. In 1948 the sisters made up the entire Canadian women's Olympic alpine ski team at St. Moritz, Switzerland.
