Two Olympic rivals just got married this past weekend.

Meghan Duggan, who was the captain of the U.S. Olympic women’s hockey team at Pyeonchang, married Gillian Apps, who was the captain of Canada’s women’s hockey team until she retired in 2015.

Duggan’s team got the gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The two faced off at the Winter Olympics at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics, where the US came in second place to Canada both times.

Between the two of them, they have four gold medals.

The women tied the knot at a farm in Maine, surrounded by family and friends and bridesmaids, several of whom are themselves Olympians.

Duggan described it as “the most incredible day of my entire life,” as she shared photos on Instagram.

Apps also shared photos on Instagram.

Congratulations came in on social media for the former rivals, including from Team USA’s official account.
