Canada's women hockey team claimed gold for the first time since 2013.
Canada edged past the United States, Canada’s biggest rival, in a thrilling 3-2 victory. Canada was led by Brooke Boquist and Sarah Potomak, who both scored in the tournament-winning goal late in the second period.
Canada also received stellar performances from goaltender Genevieve Lacasse and forwards Emma Maltais and Emily Clark. With this victory, Canada has now won gold at the FISU World University Winter Games in 2003, 2007, 2009 and 2013.
Canada is aiming to reclaim its crown again in 2023 when the tournament returns to Lake Placid. Canada will look to build on this success next winter as they prepare for their 2021 World Women’s Hockey Championship campaign.
With Canada’s strong performance in the FISU tournaments, Canada is looking to reclaim its spot as the top hockey nation in the world. Canada has all of the pieces necessary to make a deep run at 2023 and will be looking forward to continuing their success from this tournament into future competitions.
Their triumph certainly bodes well for Canada ahead of the 2023 tournament, where Canada will look to defend its gold medal and prove that it is still the top hockey nation in the world. Canada’s women hockey team will be sure to use this victory as a confidence booster heading into their 2021 Championship campaign and beyond.
Canada will hope to capitalize on this recent success and bring home more gold medals in 2023 and beyond. Canada’s Women Hockey team is set to continue their run of success in the 2023 FISU World University Winter Games and prove once again why Canada is a hockey superpower.
