Sister Act Leads To Gold
Sister Act Leads U.S. To Olympic Gold
It was the third Olympic Games Jocelyn Lamoureux competed in and most definitely the sweetest. She was on the wrong end of the first two gold medal games in 2010 and 2014, losing to Canada on both occasions.
The North Dakota natives, who have four highly-accomplished hockey-playing brothers, were a big part of the United States' march to the gold. Jocelyn had four goals in five games, including two that came just six minutes apart against the athletes of Russia. It established an Olympic record for shortest time between goals by anyone, men or women.
Monique came up clutch with the game-tying gold against Canada and earned the reputation as one of the best two-way players in the tournament.
The Lamoureux twins are the first born-and-raised North Dakotans ever to win a gold medal. Their father, Jean-Pierre, is a Canadian native who played hockey at the University of North Dakota.
