Three Winnipeg athletes who competed at the 2012 London Olympic Games will greet their local fans on Monday.

Olympian bronze medal soccer player Desiree Scott, silver medal rower Janine Hanson, and rower Kevin Kowalyk, will be at Polo Park Shopping Centre signing autographs from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba (CSCM) is hosting the event, being held in the mall’s centre court.

Scott was a pivotal part of Team Canada’s victory over France to win the bronze medal. She recently announced her return to the Manitoba Bison women’s soccer team as an assistant coach.

Hanson won the silver medal as part of Canada’s women’s eight rowing team. She also has two World Championship silver medals in women’s eight rowing to her credit, and placed 8th at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in quad sculls rowing.

Kowalyk finished 6th in men’s double sculls at the 2012 London Olympics.
