When was the Miracle on Ice?

The "Miracle on Ice" refers to when Team USA defeated the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics hockey league, on February 22. The U.S. team then won their last match against Finland, winning the gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

The Soviet Union had won gold in the previous four Olympic games and had won 12 gold medals in 16 world championships from 1961 until 1979, and was very likely to beat the U.S. in the game. However, the U.S. triumphed 4-3.

The event was named by Sports Illustrated in 1999 as the top sports moment of the 20th century and the International Ice Hockey Federation chose the "Miracle on Ice" as its number one international ice hockey story in 2008, as part of its 100th-anniversary celebrations.

Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer at Chipotle, said: "Hockey is more than just a sport, it's a way of life. At Chipotle, we share that same level of passion when it comes to our fresh ingredients and classic cooking techniques.

"By sponsoring USA Hockey and putting the go-to orders of some of the most exciting players in the sport on our app, we're excited to give the hockey community authentic ways to enjoy our real food just like the pros."

The "buy one get one" deal is limited to ten free items per check. To get a free item, customers must purchase any entree, including a kid's meal. The purchased meal must be of equal or greater value than the free entree and only those wearing hockey jerseys can redeem the offer.
