TEAM CANADA RECLAIMS GOLD MEDAL
After losing the first place medal to Team U.S.A in the 2018 Olympic games in PyeongChang, Team Canada’s women's hockey team reclaimed the gold medal in Thursday’s final in Beijing.
Speaking on this, forward Rebecca Johnston explained that it was “just a lot of emotions” as “losing in 2018 was an awful feeling and we wanted to regain that podium and win that gold medal”.
This was a game filled with super stars, such as Quebec native Marie Phillip Poulin who scored two goals, putting Team Canada at a 3-2 win against rival team U.S. A. As fantastic as this is, it is not Poulin’s first time, as the superstar has scored seven goals in her four Olympic final appearances.
Other stars in the game included Ann-Renée Desbiens, who made an outstanding 38 saves and Sarah Nurse, who became the first black woman to win an Olympic gold in hockey.
Watch out for the next winter Olympic games in Milan Cortina in 2026!
