THOMPSON-OKANAGAN — The bitter rivalry between women's hockey teams north and south of the border will continue in Kamloops this November when the 4 Nations Cup comes to town.
Hockey Canada announced Kamloops will be hosting the 4 Nations Cup in 2014 the day before the Olympics started. With Team Canada coming from behind to beat Team USA in the gold medal game at the Sochi Winter Olympics all eyes are turning to Kamloops as people anxiously wait for the rematch, which will be the first major international event for women's hockey following the Olympics.
Canada, USA, Finland (fifth at the Olympics) and Sweden (fourth at the Olympics) will all compete in the series, which begins Nov. 4. This is only the sixth time Canada has hosted the cup, the first time in B.C.
The first 4 Nations Cup tournament was held in 1996 and Canada has won the 4 Nations Cup 13 times since then, including last year. Including Sochi, Canada has won gold at the Olympics four times.
