Yeah that's a sad bit of news here.. Who cares where she was born?? If she moved to Calgary at the age of 3, and is in her 20's (I imagine), then I call her an Albertan. And the little sidebar about the soccer player with a father born in Stephenville is even more pathetic. How about covering some Rugby, Softball, Boxing or something local instead of some wrestler who was born in a city she probably hasn't visited since she left (pure speculation). Must be slow at the office at the Tely....

Sorry, but she does not wear her Newfoundland birth like a badge of honor. She considers herself a Western Canadian and that is her prerogative. She's never had any sporting presence here and wasn't promoted as a Newfoundlander when the Canadian Olympic Team was announced. Let her be, don't try to make a story that really does not resonate with the athlete or the audience here.

You're really grasping for something when a person simply born in Newfoundland makes the Olympics. How about some real news.
