#127: Amanda Pelkey — USA Women’s Gold Medal Hockey, The Olympics and the Game
I am so honored to bring you this week’s episode with USA Gold Medal Olympic Hockey player Amanda Pelkey.
Amanda shares all sorts of incredible stories from the USA’s journey to gold medal glory. In this episode we talk about the hard work, sacrifice and dedication that is involved in making the team, moments from the Olympic experience that she will always remember, and how her team’s attitude, toughness and mental fortitude led to their success.
We also talk about the gold medal game against Canada which was one of the absolute most intense games I’ve ever seen in all my time watching sports. Amanda discusses her mentality going into the game, how the team handled the emotions of playing for a gold medal, and what the locker room was like going into overtime.
(I literally just rewatched the highlights and the moment they win the game always gives me chills and chokes me up. To work your whole life towards something that momentous is absolutely incredible!)
This was one of my favorite episodes of the podcast and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did! Amanda was so unbelievably awesome and well spoken and you won’t be able to leave this show without being beyond inspired by her story. Best of luck for everything she pursues in the future!
