Olympic Women’s Hockey Gold Now Belongs To The USA Team. They Beat Canada For The 1st Time In 20 Years
The last time it was back in 1998 when the US team won gold in women’s hockey competition. They managed to beat Canada even though it was anticipated that the USA wouldn’t be the winner. Canada had won all the competitions in the previous years, so it was logical that the Olympics won’t be an exception.

This year has brought another victory to the USA team. And it’s the first time in 20 years. It made all 22 Canadian players cry, and the winners of the silver medal yanked them off right after they were placed around their necks. This moment might be proudly called the disappointment of the century.

The reaction of the fans from both countries was quite natural. Some tried to cheer the Canadian team up and recommended them to keep their heads up. While the fans of the US team openly showed their admiration and respect!
USA!! USA!!! ???????? ????
