Horgan sets sights on Olympic dream
- Updated: September 10, 2013
One of the bright young stars on the country’s competitive curling scene, Tracy Horgan, from Sudbury, Ont., made a major statement two seasons ago, registering an upset over Rachel Homan in the final of the provincial women’s playdowns.
At just 27 years of age, she has competed three times in the Canadian junior women’s championship before moving up to represent Ontario at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts.
When the 2013 Capital Road to the Roar, presented by Monsanto, hits the ice Nov. 5-10 at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex, Horgan will have the opportunity to take the next big step in her curling career.
With the support of teammates Jennifer Horgan, Jenna Enge and Amanda Gates, she’ll be part of the 24-team field taking the final shot at the right to wear Canada’s colours at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
A fifteenth-place finish in last year’s Canadian Team Ranking System qualified Horgan for the Pre-Trial event that has come to be known as “Roartario”, with 10 of the 24 teams based in the home province.
Six days of intense competition in Kitchener will see four teams move on to Winnipeg for the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, presented by Monsanto, where Canada will crown our two Olympic teams.
