Natalie Darwitz, Olympic Champion

Natalie began skating at age five in Eagan and now just returned from winning an Olympic silver medal in Vancouver as the Captain of the US women's hockey team. She also sports a bronze medal from the Olympic Games in Torino, Italy and Silver from the Salt Lake City Olympics. Olympian Darwitz graduated from Eagan High School and the University of Minnesota. The Vancouver Olympic medals are all different & unique with each one making up a piece of the bigger "puzzle" of the scarf's design inspired by native Canadian art. Congratulations, Natalie!

  13. A very fine-looking young lady and I can see why Eagan would be proud of her. And she kind of offsets the presence of a certain financial advisor which shall remain nameless...(psst - his name sort rhymes with Eagan)...
