Two games into the tournament and the U.S. stands at 2-0!
After a day off, the U.S. women were back on the ice this morning for a pregame skate on the competition sheet at the Kwandong Hockey Centre ahead of their game against the Olympic Athletes of Russia. With the late game on the schedule today – a 9:10 p.m. local start time – the morning skate commenced at noon. The afternoon was spent resting and preparing for the night’s game.
A RECORD NIGHT
Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson (Grand Forks, N.D.) set an Olympic record for the fastest two goals scored by a single player to lead the U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team to a 5-0 victory over the Olympic Athletes from Russia in tonight’s game. With the win, the U.S. secured a bye to the semifinal round on Monday (Feb. 19) as one of the top-two seeds in Group A.
EAT LIKE AN OLYMPIAN
Athletes from the U.S. Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey Team pay close attention to what they eat each day while training so that they can stay at the top of their game. Here’s a glimpse of U.S. captain Meghan Duggan’s (Danvers, Mass.) training nutrition regimen:
Sample Breakfast: Breakfast bowl consisting of three eggs, fresh greens, variety of vegetables (cooked and raw), nuts and seeds
Sample Lunch: Depending on the training day, usually just anything I can get in between sessions, such as oatmeal with nuts and seeds and berries, chicken breasts and greens, hardboiled eggs and fruit.
Sample Dinner: I LOVE to change it up with dinner, keep it very varied each week. I get in tons of different protein sources each night of the week – fish, pork, chicken, red meat, vegetarian.
Sample Snacks: Nuts and seeds, veggies, hummus, cheese, fruit
