Former Saint women's hockey star Gina Kingsbury became the third Saint athlete to earn an Olympic gold medal February 20, when she was part of the Canadian women's hockey team's gold medal win over Sweden.

Kingsbury, a 2004 graduate and the second-leading scorer in Saint women's hockey history, played center for Team Canada and had two assists in the Olympic tournament, one against Russia and the other against Finland on a power play goal. She wore the same number, 27, that she wore at St. Lawrence.

Kingsbury joins Isabelle Chartrand '03n, who won Olympic gold with the Canadian women's hockey team in 2002 and Ed Rimkus '32, who was a member of the U.S. four-man bobsled team which won gold in the 1948 Olympics as SLU's gold-medal winners.

A second-team All America as a senior and a two-team All ECAC Hockey League all star, Kingsbury won prior championships with Team Canada at the Four Nations Cup and at the 2001, 2004 and 2005 IIHF World Women's Hockey Championships. She has been a member of eight medalist teams for Hockey Canada, six gold and two silver, prior to the Olympic gold.

A psychology major at St. Lawrence, she played professional hockey in 2004-05 for the Montreal Axion of the National Women's Hockey League and had 31 goals and 29 assists for 60 points in 30 games.
