This skinsuit was worn by Clara Hughes at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver where she won her sixth Olympic speed skating medal, a bronze in the 5,000 meters. Hughes is unique as she is the only athlete ever to be a multiple medalist in both the summer and winter games. In 1996 she won two bronze medals in cycling at Atlanta. Her Olympic career also includes three other speed skating medals, a bronze in 2002 Salt Lake, and a gold and silver in 2006 Turino, Italy.
