Canadian Women's Hockey Team Wins Gold Medal, 2002

It was February 21, 2002 when Team Canada beat Team USA 3-2 at the Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. Eight countries competed in women's ice hockey when the Canadian Women's Hockey Team earned the medal. Caroline Ouellette, Hayley Wickenheiser and Jayna Hefford scored the goals that led to the victory. Team captain Cassie Campell recalled "It's been four long years thinking about that disappointment in '98 and finally bringing the gold medal home to the country where it belongs."
