North Dakota Athletes in the Winter Olympics
The 2018 Winter Olympics are underway in South Korea and just two of USA's athletes are from North Dakota.
By now, we're almost all too familiar with these Olympians. From Grand Forks, ND, Jocelyn Lamoureux and her twin sister, Monique Lamoureux will be playing on the USA Women's Hockey Team. They've previously been on the team in both 2010 and 2014.
In 2014, Team USA suffered a heart-breaking overtime loss in the Gold Medal game to Canada. In 2017, at the IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship, Team USA got a bit of revenge with an overtime Gold Medal win of their own over Team Canada. The two teams could very well meet up again, being the two powerhouses in women's hockey.
Various NBC networks will carry the broadcasts of the women's hockey game and you can also stream the games on NBC's Olympics Website.
The schedule for Team USA will be as follows:
- Sunday, February 11th - USA vs. Finland - 1:40 a.m.
- Tuesday, February 13th - USA vs. Russia - 6:10 a.m.
- Thursday, February 15th - USA vs. Canada - 1:40 a.m.
Beyond those games in pool play will be the elimination/medal round stages taking place between Friday, February 16th and Wednesday, February 21st. You can view the entire schedule here.
