Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scotland on Sunday, It means that the story of a unique sporting triumph, the original 'Miracle on Ice' if you will, when the Great Britain ice hockey team won the Olympic title, is now all but forgotten.
This lack of recognition is all the more disappointing from a Scottish perspective, as the key contributor to the British team's success was the sole Scot in the line-up, goaltender Jimmy Foster. He has the distinction of being the first Scot to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.
