100 Women We Love 2016

Here’s to this year's class of the women who inspire us, give us hope, make us laugh and make us want to get up and dance. 

EMILIA RAMBOLDT

This 27-year-old, Stockholm-born ice hockey defender, whose full name is Emilia Ingrid Maria Andersson Ramboldt, played for Sweden in the 2010 Olympics. From 2008 to 2013, she tended goal in the U.S. for Minnesota State University, where she majored in business (and rocked the Maverick gear.) Before that, she competed in the European Champion Cup three years in a row, helping Sweden achieve three consecutive first-place finishes; and in 2006, her Swedish team took home the bronze medal in the IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championship. These days, she catches pucks for Linkoping Hockey Club. Ramboldt represented her country again this past spring in the 2016 Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship held in Kamloops, Britiish Columbia, Canada, where her team ranked second in penalty killing and fourth overall in goalkeeping. Last December, she was on Sweden’s roster for the 4 Nations Cup—an annual women’s tournament between the United States, Canada, Sweden and Finland. Perhaps the highlight of her year, though, thus far, was her June wedding to blushing bride Anna. (She shoots, she scores!) The couple wore semi-matching, summery, white, sleeveless gowns and looked amazing. –SLO
