MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities community is welcoming home two women who played hockey in the Olympics.

“It’s really special now to come home and see family, friends, the community, how supportive they were when we went over there. It’s just been incredible so far,” Team USA hockey player Hannah Brandy said.
