About the Author

Jocelyne Lamoureux Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando share many things in common. They are identical twin sisters, born and raised in North Dakota. Starting at age 5, they began to play ice hockey with and against their four older brothers and on boys teams because there were no girls teams. Their competitive hockey careers started on the frozen pond in the back of their house but eventually extended to the world stage. Always playing on the same team, they won seven world championships, two Olympic silver medals, and ultimately, an Olympic gold medal in PyeongChang, South Korea in 2018. In the gold medal game, Monique scored the tying goal and Jocelyne scored the highlight reel shootout winning goal.

Monique and Jocelyne are much more than world-class athletes, though. They were raised to be difference makers. Before the 2017 world championships, the Lamoureux twins and their team put their gold medal hopes at risk by taking on their governing body by championing the cause of gender equity for themselves and for the next generation of female hockey players.

After the 2018 Olympics, they became mothers within six weeks of each other and now share a new bond of motherhood and a brand new motivation to continue their hockey careers.

Both women are dedicated to leveling the playing field for young girls and women, whether in sports, the workplace, or life. They both reside in Grand Forks, North Dakota, with their husbands and sons.
