Nothing Will Break USA Women’s Hockey

It’s dangerous to underestimate USA Women’s Hockey. But still, people do. The defending Olympic gold medalists are used to it—they’ve won a medal in every Olympic Games since the sport was first included in 1998 (unlike the men’s team, who haven’t brought home hardware since 2010 and haven’t won gold since 1980) and yet are chronically underpaid and underresourced. They’re used to not having a professional league to play in—or earn a living—outside of the Olympics. They’re used to having their tournaments canceled while men’s and boys’ hockey play on. They’re even used to the suggestion that, despite their undeniable accomplishments, women’s hockey doesn’t belong in the Olympics at all. The shade only makes them stronger.
