Shannah Hook, born in Thunder Bay, Ontario on November 5, 1980, was involved with track and field for most of her youth but didn't play any other sports.  Hook joined the Canadian Armed Forces as a Combat Engineer and continued track until 2000 when she hurt her knee.

Shannah told WBAN, “I was planning on returning to track but my injury kept me away. One day at work my now coach (Aubrey Macleod) approached me about coming to the boxing club to check it out.”  Shannah thought at the time "yeah right, not a chance!",  but after seven months of not being able to participate in track, she decided to see what it was all about.

 

Shannah said that she had so much fun on her first night at the gym, that she asked Aubrey what she would have to do to get in the ring.  Shannah said, “He told me to learn some skills and get a medical and I could get in. About one or two months after I came 'just to check it out' I was sparring and loving it.”  She lost her first fight which she said was disheartening, but that she has  learned a lot from that fight.

 “A little over two years has gone by since then,  and I have won a few and lost a few,  but I always come out learning something about myself and about the sport”, added Shannah.

At this present time Shannah is the 2003 New Brunswick 66kg Champion; 2003 Canadian Senior 66kg Silver Medalist; and 2004 New Brunswick 70kg Champion.

Shannah will be competing at the Canadian Senior Nationals again this January in Regina Saskatchewan. She has since released from the military and has returned to school, where she is a full time student at the University of New Brunswick, in which she expects to graduate with my BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) with a major in Law in December 2004.
