Hockey Canada apologizes for post medal shenanigans


After winning its gold medal in a 2-0 win over the United States, the Canadian women’s hockey team were so ecstatic that they forewent the traditional dressing room celebration, grabbed champagne and beer, passed around a cigar, and began cheering and boozing right on centre ice at Canada Hockey Place. The impromptu party has caused controversy for showing a lack of decorum, and for the participation of Marie-Philip Poulin, who is only 18 and thus under British Columbia’s legal drinking age. “In the excitement of the moment, the celebration left the confines of our dressing room and shouldn’t have. The team regrets that its gold medal celebration may have caused the IOC or COC any embarrassment,” said a statement from Hockey Canada. “Our players and team vow to uphold the values of the Olympics moving forward and view this situation as a learning experience.” On its part, the International Olympic Committee has announced that it will investigate the celebration.
