Meghan Duggan, captain of the Olympic champion U.S. hockey team, wed another gold medalist, Canadian Gillian Apps, on Saturday, according to

Together, they own four Olympic gold medals and 10 world titles.

Duggan, 31, played on the last three Olympic teams and captained the last two.

Duggan and Apps played against each other for several years until Apps retired from the Canadian national team in 2015.

Apps, a 6-foot forward, earned gold medals in 2006, 2010 and 2014 in an undefeated Olympic career. The last two titles came at the expense of the U.S. and Duggan in heated finals.

Apps’ father, Syl Jr., played 10 NHL seasons in the 1970s. Grandfather Syl was a Hockey Hall of Famer, politician and sixth-place finisher in the pole vault at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Duggan and Apps are not the first U.S.-Canadian hockey couple.

In November 2017, former U.S. captain Julie Chu and Canadian captain Caroline Ouellette, who combined for eight Olympic medals, welcomed baby daughter Liv Chu-Ouellette. They met in 2003 and began dating in 2005.
