Penguin Plunge March 17, 2018 Judge
Rebecca Dussault’s passion for sport runs deep. She is a 2006 Winter Olympian for the United States' cross country ski team. She has competed in the World Championships of 4 different sports on 3 continents. Besides being a world class multi-sport athlete she is also a wife and a mother to five sporty children. Rebecca carries her enthusiasm not only into the arena of athletics, but also inspires and challenges people to commitment, hard work, values and service to others. In 2010 Rebecca went on to become the first non-European ever to win the Winter Triathlon World Championships. As World Champion she had to sing the U.S. National Anthem from the top of the podium herself as the organizers didn't have a soundtrack for lack of expecting an American athlete would ever win.
Rebecca is grateful for the opportunity to be here and wishes the best of luck to all competitors here and most especially at the Special Olympics!
