FYC:
Angela Ruggiero and Jenny Potter - on the team that won the first gold ever in women's hockey at the Olympics. They were both on the team for three more Olympics and also won two silver and one bronze medal.

I think Mikaela Shiffrin should be added to the winter one.

Thanks, for the suggestion. The bar for inclusion, in terms of results, is lower for the Winter Olympics than for the Summer Olympics. Therefore, it is not as clear-cut.

I added her for her multi-gold medalist status and future prospects to win more gold. #30 Mikaela Shiffrin. She should appear on the poll soon.
