Bikini Champion Karen Pang Has Died In A Snowmobile Accident
Canadian bikini competitor and fitness model Karen Pang passed away in a tragic snowmobile accident on Saturday, March 27th. Karen was the owner of KaBling Designs – a company that helps competitors create custom crystal bikini posing suits.
Pang was the three-time winner of the Canadian National Bikini Championship and was also crowned the first runner-up at the renowned Miss Bikini Universe Pageant. An accomplished fitness model, a sponsored athlete, a personal trainer, and a podcast host, she made a name for herself in whatever she did.
To her fan’s disappointment, not a lot is known about the harrowing incident that cut short Karen’s life. The exact details of the snowmobile accident in Colorado that cost Karen her life are still unclear.
Karen Pang – Gone Too Soon
The announcement of Pang’s departure was made by Fitness competitor Whitney Johns, who is also her friend. John’s heartfelt farewell message to Karen aptly conveys not just her own but all of Karen’s well-wisher’s emotions.
“My WuPang Angel 💔💔 I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to wrap my head around losing you. It doesn’t seem real. Watching you leave this earth is something I will never get over and there will forever be a hole in my heart without you here.
As a friend you have shown up for me the way most people could only wish a best friend would. You showed up for a lot of people. You went out of your way for your friends and never faked the funk. You were a genuine soul and a good f—king person.
My road dog, nurse/mom, death metal DJ, comedic relief and the best Cher impersonator I’ve ever seen. You were truly my ride or die 💔
I know so many people will be hurting at the news of this. Karen passed in a snowmobiling accident yesterday afternoon. Nothing will ever ease the pain of losing such a bright light so young and unexpectedly. But, what I can say is that she spent her last moments having a blast, laughing her face off and felt no pain in her last breath.
And as her sister said, she is with her Granny and Mom in heaven now and will be so happy to see them 🙏🏼☁️ She is dearly missed by her father, sister, brother, sister-in-law and nephews 💔
I love and miss you so much already, Karen. My geisha girl, Sophia & Blanche, Thelma & Louise, WuPang clan forever 🤘🏼”
