Canada’s GOLDEN Girls!

Canadian history was made with the women’s hockey team winning the GOLD MEDAL over the United States last night. That win brought the country’s record eighth gold medal and they also became the first Canadian hockey team to win a gold medal on Canadian soil.
The game itself seemed slow, but they did what it took to get the victory and played a tight defensive game to shutout the States. I really thought they’d put up more of a fight because they’ve been the team that’s Canada’s only competition, EVER. Finland, who came in third with the bronze medal, is a young team to watch and hopefully, along with other teams like Sweden and Switzerland, will become better so they can compete against the Canadians and make for a more interesting tourney. One day it’ll happen and it can only benefit the sport, even if one day it means Canada is no longer the go-to for gold.
Until then though, we’re THE OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS! GO CANADA GO!
