In addition to sharing a love for hockey, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and “older” sister Monique Lamoureux-Morando (aka “The Twins” as their teammates know them) also shared their mom’s stomach for nine months. The 28-year-old identical twins helped Team USA earn gold at last month’s Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 after a gold-medal game against rival Canada that included Jocelyne scoring the final goal of the shootout. The medal – which joins their two Olympic silver medals from 2010 and 2014 – is the United States’ first gold since 1998.

While they were living and training in Florida leading up to the Games, we asked each sister six questions about their sibling, and gave them a point for every correct answer. See how they answered and who scored more points.

What is the funniest prank you two ever pulled together?

Jocelyne’s Answer: At the University of North Dakota we did cups where we filled up over 500 cups half full of water. We put them up the stairway and you literally couldn’t walk anywhere. Every inch of floor was covered with cups filled with water. And you can’t just knock them over because there was water in all of them.

Monique’s Guess: Last year at worlds we switched jerseys at practice. So she was playing forward and I was playing defense. When we finally went to center ice and took our helmets off, our coaches didn’t get it at the time. It took them a couple years before they were able to tell us apart, so when they looked at the number on our helmets they finally figured it out. It was pretty funny.
