(Beijing Winter Olympics) "Pyeongchang Script" once again staged the United States and Canada to advance to the women's ice hockey final

  China News Agency, Beijing, February 14 (Wang Hao) The women's ice hockey semifinals at the Beijing Winter Olympics ended on the 14th.

Canada and the United States defeated Switzerland and Finland respectively to advance to the final.

  The semi-final between Canada and Switzerland took the lead.

In the game, the Canadian team completely took the initiative on the field and finally won by a big score of 10:3.

The U.S. team defeated Finland 4-1 and joined Canada in the final.

  Historically, the United States and Canada have almost dominated women's ice hockey in the Winter Olympics.

Since the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics in women's ice hockey, the United States and Canada have won all the gold medals.

  The Canadian team has won four consecutive championships since the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, but in previous years, the team encountered a certain degree of failure.

At the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, its consecutive championship was ended by the US team, and in the semi-finals of the 2019 Women's Ice World Championships, it was eliminated by the host Finland team.

  However, at last year's Women's Ice World Championships, the Canadian team staged the "Return of the King", not only in the group stage victory over the defending champion US team, but also in the final overtime lore of the US team.

  The U.S. team has been severely affected by the new crown epidemic in the past two years, and the suspension of the Canadian Women’s Professional Hockey League has also had a greater impact on American women’s ice hockey.

But in the world, the US team is still a strong team.

  Before the start of the Beijing Winter Olympics, the outside world was optimistic that the final final of women's ice hockey was still the "two-player" between the United States and Canada.

Both teams were in Group A at the Winter Olympics, and the Canadian team won all four of their group matches, with an astonishing 28 goal difference.

The U.S. team only lost in the group stage against Canada and won all other games easily.

  Now that the two teams will meet again in the final, the Canadian team has an opportunity to avenge the "one arrow" of revenge four years ago.

  Canadian player Britney Jenner said after the team reached the final: "It's not easy to get to the final, we have spent a lot of time training and playing on the ice over the past few years."

  As for Team USA, her opponent over the years, she said: "We all know the history of the past Winter Olympics, we have to go out and have a championship-level performance, whether or not we win the championship, we want to make sure we play our best. Performance."

  The women's ice hockey final of the Beijing Winter Olympics will be held at the Wukesong Sports Center on February 17.
