Ice Hockey – Women
United States of America
For the first time in a generation, Team USA has won gold in Olympic women’s hockey.
Adding another instant classic to their storied rivalry, the United States and Canada played to the bitter end in Wednesday’s finale at Pyeongchang. Appropriately, the game went to overtime and then a shootout, where Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the ?gold medal-clinching goal in the sixth round.
This is Team USA’s first gold medal since the 1998 Nagano Olympic games. The team that won the last three women’s world championships finally found a way to put its heartbreaking loss in Sochi to bed.
The United States women’s national team is, without a doubt, the best hockey team in the world.
