STRIKING GOLD 2002
Cassie Campbell spearheaded Canada’s vengeance
The Canadian women’s hockey team won silver to the U.S.’s gold in the sport’s Olympic debut in 1998. Four years later, Richmond Hill hero Cassie Campbell led the squad to meet their southern rivals in the finals again. Canada had lost eight straight to the Americans, but U of T alumna Jayna Hefford slapped home the winning goal, asserting the Canucks’ on-ice dominance. The team has won gold at every Olympics since.
