Canadian women's hokey team celebration under investigation

The International Olympic Committee is gonna investigate the way the Canada's women hokey players celebrated their gold medal win. On Thursday, Canada won 2-0 over USA and after the awards ceremony the women team members remained to celebrate for more than 1 hour in the arena which was empty excepting the arena staff and media. Several players including also the 18-year-old Marie-Philip Poulin started drinking alcohol and smoking cigars on the ice field. Regarding Poulin's age, in British Columbia the legal drinking age is 19. Following these events, the IOC will investigate the case and will speak to the Canadian Olympic Committee and international hokey federation and require them to take measures. The Canadian officials try to protect their team under the excuse that was an emotional and exciting moment. They said the team did not want to break IOC protocols and should have been more discreet with the entertainment. Banning the team from closing ceremony or to exclude them out of the olympic village would be something too drastic,,,but at least they can keep the medals and that's the most important thing:).
