This was the first ever gold medal earned by the Canadian women's soccer team.
The team members aren't the only ones who celebrated. Back in Canada, fans were very excited about the win.
Of perhaps the most noteworthy was captain Christine Sinclair, who has been part of the Canadian women's national team for 21 years.
Her 187 goals (the most of any international player), 304 caps and now third Olympic medal put Sinclair in a league of her own. For her, this win has been a long time coming.
