Sport: Ice Hockey

The U.S. Women's Ice Hockey Team's gold medal at the Nagano 1998 Olympic Winter Games had a lasting impact; there were 28,000 girls and women who played ice hockey at the time, a number that has grown to 80,000 today.
The 1980 U.S. Men's Ice Hockey Team of college players and minor leaguers pulled perhaps the biggest upset ever in Olympic history, pulling off the "Miracle On Ice" to win the gold medal at the Lake Placid 1980 Olympic Winter Games.
The last player cut from the 1960 U.S. Olympic Team that won gold at Squaw Valley, Herb Brooks played in the next two Olympics and was the coach of the 1980 Miracle On Ice gold-medal winning team.
