The Canadian women’s ice hockey team became Olympic champions at the Games in Sochi, winning the final match against the United States 3-2. Canada was trailing 0-2 during the game, but was able to tie it up before scoring the winning goal in overtime. Earlier, Switzerland won the bronze medal by defeating Sweden 4-3.
“We wanted to win a gold medal,” said veteran forward Julie Chu. “We’ve been working for that for four years. Hopefully, when people see us disappointed in the moment, they don’t see that as we don’t appreciate being Olympians, that we don’t appreciate our silver medals around our neck, because we absolutely do. But as competitors, you want to be the best in the world.”
