The United States women’s hockey team won the gold medal at Pyeongchang with a thrilling shootout victory against Canada. It’s the first women’s hockey gold medal in 20 years for Team USA, and they certainly wouldn’t have been able to get it done without the remarkable efforts from Maddie Rooney.
The 20-year-old goaltender stopped 29 of Canada’s shots, and made the gold medal-winning stop in the shootout:
