One of the truly compelling stories of these Olympics reaches its conclusion today. The hockey gold medal will be awarded, and Team Canada’s women are in the final game. This team has overcome a lot, including the resignation of their coach which was followed by a difficult period of transition.
Team Canada women’s hockey wrote an incredible story in 2002, overcoming so much in winning the gold medal. It remains memorable a decade later, and one suspects it will be remembered forever as the most significant hockey event for Canada’s women.
And yet, we are here. From turmoil in December to a silver in February is the story of a lifetime. If this team wins gold? Team Canada v Team USA in Russia. You cannot get a better storyline than this one. Today.
Bless you, Team Canada. Do it again! We are with you!
