From March 28, 2016 to April 4, 2016, the tournament capital of Canada, Kamloops, BC, entertained the world as the city hosted the 2016 IIHF Women’s World Championship. The tournament was the second major international women’s hockey event to be held in the city in a span of 18 months; Kamloops hosted the 2014 4 Nations Cup. This was the first time in the Women’s World Championship 26-year history that BC hosted.
The United States defeated Canada in overtime to claim the gold medal and Russia took home bronze when the team edged Finland in a shootout.
