COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - June 9, 2016 - We are just 8 weeks away from the start of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In the build up to the pinnacle of sporting events, USA Field Hockey would like to reflect back on past U.S. Olympic Games Teams who have already chased the dream before our current U.S. Women's National Team athletes (and some even before they were born!). Each Thursday, now until the Games, we will highlight a past team on our Twitter account, @USAFieldHockey.

For the first #TBT, we are featuring the 1932 U.S. Men's Olympic Games Team and 1984 U.S. Women's Olympic Games Team. Both teams went on to earn bronze medals in their respective games.
