After Canada’s women’s hockey team defeated the U.S., 2-0, to win the gold medal Thursday at Canada Hockey Place, they decided to do some celebrating.

More than half an hour after they clinched their third consecutive Olympic title, they came back onto the ice. Beer was involved in their festivities.


The International Olympic Committee plans to investigate the matter and whether the players’ celebration outside the locker room is harmful to their image and the game’s.
