Description - Winning Gold by Lorna Schultz Nicholson
The 2002 Winter Olympics were hosted by Salt Lake City, Utah. Just four years previous, Women's Hockey had become an official Olympics sport, at Nagano, Japan. There, the Canadian team had been favoured to win the gold. They were the World Championship winners, after all. Yet in a disappointing final game, Team Canada lost to the USA and ended up with a silver. Now, heading into the 2002 winter Games, they're on a losing streak. What would it take for our women to bring home the gold? [Fry Reading Level - 3.1]
