Gold in women’s hockey sets new record

Eighth gold medal gives Canada its highest-ever total at the Winter Games


The Canadian women’s hockey team didn’t just win gold when they beat their U.S. counterparts in Thursday’s tournament final; they also set a new Canadian record for first-place finishes at the Winter Games. The gold medal in women’s hockey was Canada’s eighth at the Vancouver Games, beating the previous record of seven set in 2002 (and matched in 2006). Norway (2002) and the Soviet Union (1976) share the record for the most gold medals at a single Olympics with 13.
