U.S. Women's Hockey Team

Nagano, 1998

The U.S. men's team disgraced itself by busting up a dorm in the Olympic Village after failing to medal, but the women's squad delivered some honor and redemption by winning America's first gold in hockey since the 1980 Miracle On Ice. Led by forward Cammi Granato, defender Angela Ruggiero, and goaltender Sarah Tueting, the U.S. rolled to gold while outscoring foes by a combined 36-8 and beating archrival Canada twice in four days as women's hockey made its Olympic debut.
