Team USA’s hockey teams are approaching a historic feat at the 2022 Beijing Olympics. With the women’s team playing in Wednesday’s gold-medal game and the men’s team owning a perfect 3-0 record, the squads are hoping to reach the podium in the same Games for the third time ever.
Both the men’s and women’s teams earned silver in 2010 and 2002, but they’re aiming for gold this time around. The defending-champion women’s squad will vie for its gold medal against Canada, the team it’s played in the final in five of the last six Olympics, on Wednesday. Team USA’s men’s team will battle Slovakia in the quarterfinals the day prior.
But the Olympic excitement runs far beyond hockey. Here are the other events to watch on Day 14 of the Beijing Games.
