Jocelyne Larocque sorry for taking off silver medal after women's hockey loss

OAR will be big favorites in the gold medal game, but Canada and Sweden were big favorites as well.

Meanwhile, Finland was all smiles accepting their bronze, showing once again that bronze is often the better result.

Canadian hockey player Jocelyne Larocque drew attention when she took off her silver medal upon being awarded it following the gold medal game at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang on Thursday. They won the gold medal at the World University Games on the same sheet of ice in Pinerolo, Italy, that hosted the Olympic bronze medal match.

So while a silver medal might be a nice consolation for a skier or skater, in this tournament all it means is that you lost the only game that matters. Germany last medaled in 1976, and has never won gold. "They're so smart on the ice, it's cool to see them moving without the puck and be able to make the plays while you're out there on the ice with them".

For the top athletes, this can be a huge letdown.

Hillary Knight opened the scoring for U.S. but Haley Irwin and Marie-Philip Poulin put Canada ahead before Monique Lamoureux-Morando took the match into overtime in Pyeongchang. It is not known whether or not the disheartened women's hockey player ever wore her silver medal after the confrontation. He didn't worry about Rooney even after Haley Irwin and captain Marie-Philip Poulin scored in the second period to give Canada a 2-1 lead.

Finland was all smiles after accepting their bronze medals.

Another shock is that the Canadian women aren't playing anymore, either. Numerous players were in tears, and understandably so.

Defenseman Jocelyne Larocque pulled the medal from her neck just seconds after it was placed there on Thursday.

"They don't call you "rejects" any more after the three world championship appearances", George said.

"But we wanted to make them throw some hard shots, some shots to win the game, some shots to stay in the game and I think we did that".

This ends Canada's impressive run at the Olympics in men's curling - having reached every Olympic final since the sport returned to the Olympics in 1998. "I've been there and there is criticism. But not everyone sees all the hard work they do to get to the spot they're at", Frost said.

"We're going to play our hearts out", Landsteiner said, "but it takes a little bit of pressure off and allows us to just go out and play and not think, 'What if we get fourth?'"
