The boon for women's sports can be traced back to the 1998 Olympic Games between the USA and Canada

The popularity of women's sports continues to grow, not only with record television ratings during the NCAA women's basketball tournament, but also with the professional women's hockey league. The six-team league began in January and made a stop at Little Caesars Arena last month. With that in mind, we look back at one of the defining moments in women's hockey history, which is chronicled in the book, “A Miracle of Their Own” was written by former Free Press sportswriter Keith Jaffe And Tim Rapley. The book looks at the US women's hockey team's 1998 Nagano Olympics win over Canada, a driving force in one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports.

For many years after Team USA's victory over Canada in the inaugural women's Olympic ice hockey tournament in Nagano, some members on the wrong side of that result tended to downplay the significance of their silver medals. Rather, they tended to say: “We lost the gold.” Because their mentality going into the games was that winning anything with gold was unthinkable.
