Yesterday, in a moment that will go down as one of the greatest in the history of the Olympics the United States Women’s hockey team defeated Canada in a thrilling shootout to win the Gold medal. This was an amazing moment to be able to witness in person with everyone in attendance on the edge their seats throughout the third period, overtime and the shootout. The atmosphere in the venue was so amazing with Canadian and USA fans going back and forth with cheers for their team. Once the final shootout attempt was stopped by 20 year old goalie Maddie Rooney the Hockey center erupted in cheers as the US women had done the impossible and beaten the team that had won gold in the sport at 4 straight Olympic games with the USA winning their first gold in the sport since the 1998 Olympics in Nagano. Being able to witness this historic event in person was truly amazing and defiantly one I will remember and brag about being at for the rest of my life.
