Between 1956 and 1988, the USSR dominated Olympic hockey. The Russians won all but two gold medals during that time. The US team won their first gold medal in hockey in 1960, and famously defeated the Soviets in the semifinals of the 1980 Winter Games in Lake Placid in the “Miracle on Ice” game on their way to their second gold medal. In that game, amateur college players defeated the heavily favored, professional Russian team.
