This week, 2012 Women of Curling Calendar model Heather Smith-Dacey makes her return to the pages of Sportsnet Magazine.
Her first appearance took place in 2012, shortly after the debut of Canada’s new all-sports glossy. The Curling News fielded a call requesting product info and a sample photo, and the Halifax skip agreed to release one of her images. The result can be seen at left.
Fast-forward to earlier this year, when Smith-Dacey received a surprise phone call: Would she agree to be flown to Las Vegas for a Sportsnet Magazine photo shoot?
Er… is the sky blue?
HSD said yes, jetted to Vegas – the surprise host city of January’s 2014 Continental Cup – and posed for the cameras while poolside at the famed Bellagio casino.
Smith-Dacey is appearing with other Canadian athletes in Sportsnet Magazine’s annual “Beauty of Sport” issue.
One of her fellow models is summer Olympic hero Adam Van Koeverden, aka Van Kayak.
This issue of Sportsnet Magazine hits news stands on July 16 – be sure to check it out.
