And the crowd went wild. Well I guess it is kind of wild but it certainly was a beautiful celebration after the united Korean women’s ice hockey team scored their first goal in Olympic competition.
Randi Heesoon Griffin will go down in the history books as the scorer but the goal against Japan will be remembered more for the way it was celebrated.
The much talked about North Korean cheerleaders went into overdrive but it was the fans who filled the ice with teddy bears after the game.
Eventhough united Korea lost the game to Japan 2-1 the goal went the stadium into raptures.
Goals had been hard to come by for Korea, going down 8-0 in each of their previous two games against Switzerland and Sweden.
