Chanda Gunn, seen here celebrating a win at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, won a bronze medal with the team after a 4-0 victory over Finland.
Gunn, who has epilepsy, started her college career with University of Wisconsin.  Unfortunately, her freshman year, she had to miss school and ice time due to grand mal seizures.  Gunn, who had not disclosed her epilepsy to the school, spent almost a year in the hospital getting the seizures under control.  Once her medications were adjusted, Wisconsin had moved on, and she had a hard time finding a school to play for.
Gunn joined Northeastern’s program as a walk on and worked her way up to a starting position with a scholarship setting several records along the way.  In her junior season (2002-2003), Gunn put up a 1.37 GAA, good for second in the country, and led the nation with a .950 SV%.  In her senior season (2003-2004), Gunn again led the nation with a .938 SV%, posted a 2.06 GAA, and was named Hockey East Player of the Year. She was a three time Patty Kazmaier award finalist and won the Hockey Humanitarian award in 2004.
In addition to her Olympic bronze medal, Gunn has also won gold (2005) and silver (2007) medals with Team USA at IIHF Women’s World Championships.

During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
