US Women's Hockey Wins Gold For First Time In 20 Years

As US women's hockey team eyes gold, Holland resident recalls joy of '98

They had to threaten to boycott the world championships to get it, but they won.

Meanwhile, Finland was all smiles accepting their bronze, showing once again that bronze is often the better result.

The US women's hockey team defeated their longtime Canadian rivals in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Thursday to take home the team's first gold medal since 1998. Canada had won 24 straight Olympic games to go along with four consecutive gold medals. When asked if the silver was any consolation she responded, "I mean, yeah". Although, there is one Canadian Olympian who is getting quite a bad rep after last night's game.

Monique Lamoureux celebrates after scoring a goal during the women's hockey gold medal game at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 22, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea.

It ended a decades-long drought of Winter Olympics gold.

For the top athletes, this can be a huge letdown. This was the Olympics, the official from the International Ice Hockey Federation explained.

Congratulations Team USA! See Team USA celebrate their gold medal win with the TODAY Show!

With a gold medal on the line.

Charles Hamelin snagged his fifth lifetime Olympic medal with a bronze in the short track speed skating 5000m relay.

Canadians failed to make the podium in women's snowboard big air. During the postgame medal ceremony, Larocque took off her silver medal nearly immediately after it was put around her neck.

And it is not a temporary disappointment for many of them either.

Gigi Marvin scores a goal against Canada in the overtime penalty shootout during the women's hockey gold medal game at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 22, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. "I've been there and there is criticism".

American Vonn had the fastest downhill time but did not complete her slalom run, bringing her 17-year Olympic career to a disappointing close. "We wanted gold but didn't get it".

She said she had worked on the penalty shot a "thousand times" which won the match. "I'm just so happy for our players".
