The terminal was packed with fans and well wishers as the team got off the plane.

You may be wondering -- what is the U.S. Women's Hockey team doing in Florida?

They actually train in Wesley Chapel.

The team won the gold by beating Team Canada last Wednesday in Pyeong Chang.

This was a special victory for them, because they lost the gold to the Canadians four years ago in overtime.
