Newcastle’s Own Winter Olympic Gold Medal Winner

Not only did the Canadian Women’s Hockey Team win gold at the recent Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia in a heart stopping game against the Americans, but Tara Watchorn, one of the triumphant Canadian women, was from Newcastle, Ontario.

On the day of the gold medal game the community hall in Newcastle was packed with people watching the game on a gigantic screen.  The game was specially streamed in by satellite courtesy of the parent municipality Clarington.
