Team USA Wins First Women's Ice Hockey Olympic Gold Medal In 20 Years
Just a little over a week from when Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson made Olympic hockey history as the first person (male of female) to score the fastest two goals, the three-time Olympian scored the winning goal that earned Team USA the gold.
Jocelyne scored the winning goal in the dramatic, six-frame shootout to break a 80-minute 2-2 deadlock and Team USA earned a gold medal for the first time since 1998.
But, she might not have had the opportunity if it wasn't for her twin sister Monique Lamoureux-Morando's, who had a game-tying goal with less than six minutes remaining in the final frame.
Together, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando, the U.S. Olympic twins sisters accomplished their ultimate goal of winning gold!
"We very well knew what was at stake," she said, "knowing we were on the heels of an Olympic year and we knew we would find a way to make a difference and we did. In women's hockey, we're now the leading country in the world. We've taken huge steps to get there and we're going to keep taking steps."
The 28-year-old said she and her twin leave a legacy that goes beyond the goals they scored in the gold-medal game.
"That we left this team and program better off than we came into it," she said, and I think we've done that."
