The United States women's hockey team has claimed its first Olympic gold medal in 20 years by downing Canada, 3-2 in a shootout.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in the first extra round of the shootout after her twin sister, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, tied it with six minutes left in regulation.

The Lamoureux Twins from Grand Forks, North Dakota come from an amazing family of athletes.

SportsJam with Doug Doyle sat down with the Lamoureux twins last February in NYC, a year before they would become Olympic champions.  Their story of family, commitment, drive and triumph are inspirations to many young women and men around the world.
