The United States women’s hockey team will be taking on Sweden on Monday in the semifinals of the 2014 Winter Olympics tournament. With the team being just one win away from a berth in the gold medal match, forward Julie Chu will be toughing it out and playing through an injury.

According to reports, Chu is suffering from a left hand injury that occurred during practice on Saturday, but she will fight through the pain.

Chu owns two silver medals (2002, 2010) and a bronze in 2006, so she will be working to do her part and bring home the first gold medal of her impressive international career.
