Canada’s Jocelyne Larocque Immediately Removes Silver Medal After Losing To U.S. (VIDEO)
In the last four Winter Olympics, Canada’s women’s hockey team have taken the Gold medal home and they looked to extend that streak in South Korea.
Canada were the heavy favorites as they got set to take on the United States, but they were shocked when the Americans scored a game-tying goal in the third period and forced overtime. Neither team could score in the extra period, so a shootout was upon us.
Team USA eventually scored an epic goal in the 6th round of the shootout to stun Canada and win gold. Jocelyne Larocque, a 29-year-old Canadian defenseman, was understandably upset, so when the Silver Medal was placed around her neck following the game, she immediately removed it.
