Newton has always produced stars; John Krasinski, B.J Novak, Matt Leblanc, Louis C.K, the list goes on and on. Newton even has a presence in the Winter Olympics this year.
Gracie Gold, a figure skater, was born in Newton. She didnt go to school in Newton, but has said that growing up near Boston has made her love the city and the surrounding areas. Newton was also represented by 2 rowers at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Now, was there any chance Gracie wouldn’t grow up to be an olympian with a name like that? Her parents must have known she was going to be talented. Gracie Gold was born to be a figure skater, and she was also born in the land of the mush, home of the culture.
