Best Answer

The first time Ice Hockey was included in the Olympics was in 1920 at the summer games in Antwerp, Belgium. In 1924, at the first Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix, France, Ice Hockey became an official, permanent sport in the Winter Olympics. At both games Canada won the gold medal. They went on to win 6 out of the 7 first ice hockey medals in the Olympics. Women's Ice Hockey was later introduced in 1998 in Nagano, Japan where the United States women's hockey team won the gold medal.
