  1. GlobalGirlsGame 2 days, 45 hours, 6 continents, 38 countries The 2017 Global Girls‘ Game began with a puck drop in Dunedin, New Zealand and finished 48 hours later in Toronto, Canada. Team Blue finished with a victory over Team White, but the event was above all a huge win for girl's hockey worldwide. Click on “more” to view the event and visit our... . [more]
  2. Congrats guys. Good job tuniscof
  3. Still 3 countries to play the blue team is leading 128:124 after 35 matches in 35 countries
  4. About the eligibility rules Probably yes, but the mistake is even more strange since they are apparently inline hockey players and inline hockey is also under IIHF Thats cool, great to hear that the opponents are prepared to help your team, we must keep in mind that at first it´s just a sport and it´s for fun. let the guys will enjoy the rest of the "tournament" and earn some good moments and who know maybe also result(s). Good luck
  5. thats just what i was thinking about when I read it can not understand how they managed to finish the match and not die oh man, the players must be totally wrung out already after the first match even in the prehistoric era of the hockey they was some 13-14 players playing
  6. FIS ALPINE SKIING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Men's Slalom Final Results HIRSCHER Marcel 1:34.7546.43+48.32 FELLER Manuel 1:35.4347.10+48.33 NEUREUTHER Felix 1:39.0247.19+48.49 Second Gold medal for Marcel Hirscher in concluding slalom St. Moritz 2017 concluded with a thrilling men’s slalom under fantastic weather conditions, where the Austrians were the dominant team with Marcel Hirscher claiming the gold medal ahead of teammate Manuel Feller. Germany’s Felix Neureuther grabbed bronze. Not a single cloud in the sky, a compact race track, the best athletes in the world and thousands of spectators; all conditions were gathered for an excellent concluding day at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz. The one that used those conditions the best and claims another World Champion title is Marcel Hirscher. The Austrian was the favourite entering today's slalom and lived up to all the hype to walkaway with two gold (slalom and giant slalom) and a silver (alpine combined) medal. “It’s perfect,” Hirscher said after the race. “Sun is shining, great conditions today and the skiing was in all pretty good. Austria is pretty stoked with another two podiums. The young guns are kicking my ass during the training runs so I am very grateful for this, it has helped me to improve myself every training run.” After the first run, all four Austrian athletes were sitting in the Top 7, with behind Marcel Hirscher Marco Schwarz in second, Michael Matt in third and Manuel Feller in seventh. The good spirit within the Austrian slalom team definitively proved to be prolific, as at the end of the race, it’s a double win for Austria with younggun Manuel Feller holding on to the pressure and earning his first career podium. It’s a relief for Feller, who was barely qualified for the World Championships as he finished only three of the eight World Cup slaloms he participated in this season. The other surprise of the day came from Felix Neureuther. Not that a podium comes as a surprise for the German, he already won two World Championships medals in slalom and podiumed twice in slalom in this World Cup season, but because he was sitting in eights position after the first run. The experienced German had a sensational second run, which was enough to lift him to the bronze medal. It was the first medal for Germany at these Championships, saving the country from going home from St. Moritz empty handed. Finishing in fourth place was Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen, who has been going head-to-head this season against Hirscher in the slalom standings, but could not find his rhythm in St. Moritz at these World Championships and will head home empty handed. Hirscher closed the World Championships with an amazing three medals, leading all athletes. He earned gold in the slalom and giant slalom and took silver in the alpine combined, missing the gold by a mere 0.01 seconds. Today's Austrian success also lifted the nation to first place in the St. Moritz 2017 final medal standings with nine medals. Host Switzerland led throughout the Championships, but after going home today empty handed, had to settle for second place with seven medals. Both alpine nations earned three gold medals in total.

  9. Kauf and Kingsbury triumph in Tazawako dual moguls A big weekend of back-to-back competitions in Tazawako (JPN) closed with an exciting dual moguls competition on Sunday, where 20-year-old Jaelin Kauf (USA) claimed the first win of her young career in the ladies’ event and Mikael Kingsbury (CAN) rattled off his fifth-straight victory in men’s competition while officially locking down the 2016/17 moguls World Cup title in the process. In just her second full season and 16th competition on the World Cup tour, Kauf has already established herself as one of the fastest ladies’ in the world on a moguls course. This hard-charging style lends itself especially well to dual moguls competition, where the head-to-head nature of the challenge often pushes athletes outside of their comfort zone and forces them to make mistakes. With her win, Kauf now has three World Cup podiums, and all three are in the duals, proving that the high-intensity format suits her just fine. Kauf went toe to toe with Yulia Galysheva (KAZ) in a hard-fought big final that resulted in the closest ladies’ finals score we’ve seen this season, with judges scoring the matchup 19-16 in favour of Kauf. For Kauf, both of whose parents were champions on the Pro Moguls Tour, the moment was sweet. “I can’t really describe how I’m feeling right now,” said Kauf. “I was just pushing the speed all day and trying to beat the other girls down the course. I wasn’t expecting this to happen, but it’s amazing and I couldn’t be happier.” While losing out on such a close battle in the final was surely disappointing for Galysheva, Sunday’s result was the best of the season for the 24-year-old who finished 2015/16 ranked 4th overall, but who has struggled this season. Third place on the day went to Olivia Giaccio (USA), as the 16-year-old in her first full season of World Cup competition capped a great day for the US ladies’ squad by capturing her first World Cup podium in just her 9th start. Giaccio bested last season's moguls crystal globe winner Chloe Dufour-Lapointe (CAN) easily after Dufour-Lapointe skied out of her line just before the bottom air bump. While she wasn’t part of the big finals picture Sunday, Australia’s Britteny Cox was still an important figure of the competition, as the 22-year-old earned herself a 9th-place finish while making official what has already been known by most for a long time; she will claim the 2016/17 moguls Moguls World Cup title. Cox’s achievement is the biggest so-far in what has been huge season for the Aussie snow sports contingent, with her’s being the first moguls globe for the nation since Dale Begg-Smith did it in 2009/10. However, because of her season-low finish on Sunday, she was unable to lock up the Freestyle overall globe. Though it would take an unlikely sequence of events for her to lose her lead atop the overall standings - back-to-back wins by ski cross athlete Marielle Thompson (CAN) and a pair of results with zero or next-to-zero points for Cox would do it - the pressure is still on Cox to perform at next week’s World Cup finals. Kingsbury wins fifth straight event, sixth-straight globe Over on the men’s side it was a man who needs no introduction doing again what he has done so many times in his storied career, as Mikael Kingsbury took his fifth win in a row and seventh of the season to lock up what will be his sixth-straight moguls title. And, as is the case with Cox, he is all but assured of taking the Freestyle overall globe at season end as well, which would also be his sixth-straight such title. Kingsbury squared off against second-ranked Ben Cavet (FRA) in the big final on Sunday and the heavyweight matchup did not disappoint, with both athletes throwing down identical jump combos and Cavet battling gamely to match Kingsbury’s relentless speed through the middle section of the course. In the end, the men’s final ended up even more closely scored than the ladies’, with the 21-19 result swinging in Kingsbury’s favour. And while it’s been a foregone conclusion for some time now, the win officially put Kingsbury out of reach of Cavet or any other athlete in the race for this season’s moguls World Cup titles. With one more strong performance next week in China, Kingsbury will again take home a pair of crystal globes. “That was one of the craziest duals days I’ve had,” said Kingsbury, “But I felt really good today. I skied some strong duals against Dmitriy (Rieherd) and Daichi (Hara) in the blue course, which wasn’t the one I skied yesterday in singles. And then for the final I was back on the red course and it was all good. “Now I just want to get some good quality skiing in China and then head to Spain on a mission to win two gold medals (at the world championships).” Cavet’s performance gave him two podiums on the weekend and continued a remarkable season that has seen the 23-year-old Frenchman miss the podium only three times in nine competitions. Third on the day went to Matt Graham (AUS), as the Australian returned to the podium for the first time since his victory in Calgary back in January by besting Dmitriy Reiherd (KAZ) in another closely fought matchup. With the performance, Graham was able to open up a little more breathing room between himself and Philippe Marquis (CAN) in the battle for third place on the moguls leaderboard. The moguls tour now moves to Thaiwoo, China, for the moguls World Cup finals which will feature another weekend of single and duals competitions on February 25-26, 2017. Full Results Men and Women
  10. Bjoergen wins 10 km classic in Otepää In the final World Cup competition before the start of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti, Finland Marit Bjoergen of Norway won her 106th World Cup in dominant fashion. Bjoergen won the ladies' 10 km classic interval start competition in Otepää, Estonia by 26 seconds over Sweden's Charlotte Kalla who took second place and 57.2 seconds ahead of the Overall World Cup leader Heidi Weng in third. Both Bjoergen and Kalla have competed selectively this season with Bjoergen returning from pregnancy and Kalla coming back from a health scare during week one in Ruka, Finland. However, both showed they are race ready with the start of Lahti 2017 just 4 days away. Full Results Here
  11. Clark and James win Olympic halfpipe test event Kelly Clark (USA) and Scotty James (AUS) have claimed victory in the 2016-17 season's final halfpipe World Cup event which took place in the Bokwang Phoenix Park Resort, South Korea today, whilst also serving as official test event for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games, too. While James, who had triumphed in the X Games earlier this season, therefore walked away with his career's second Crystal Globe since 2014, Chloe Kim (USA) celebrated the title on the women's side of things; it was her career's first. However, the teenage halfpipe sensation who had kicked off the season with back-to-back wins had to settle for fourth today as Clark (94.00), fresh off a win at Mammoth Mountain (USA) as well as Chinese shredders Jiayu Liu (91.50) and Xuetong Cai (86.50) threw down runs which impressed the judges more. 33-year-old veteran Clark landed a frontside air to backside 540 mute, frontside 1080 indy, cab 720 invert and a crippler indy knowing that she is finally back at her game: “This is a huge step for me in my process just coming back from my hip surgery to get my riding back to a really high level. Since last week, I finally feel that I'm back to where I was before I got injured. I'm thankful to put down the run I did today, and I'm stoked of my snowboarding and even more stoked to end up atop of the podium,” she said. To do so, she was able to step it up after her first run wasn't as good as she was hoping it to be whilst sitting in second position behind of Liu who had set the bar high with her high and well executed backside air to frontside 900 tail, backside mute, frontside 720 stalefish and cab 720 tail. “In practise I did some cleaner runs. In my first run, I landed in the flat a couple of times and kind of under-rotated a few things. It was good to get one under my belt but I knew I could do it cleaner. And that was just my whole approach: land higher on those walls, hang under those grabs longer because I know that execution is important at those events. That was what I really was trying to do,” Clark recapped her career's 13th World Cup win. Her season's second was also the fourth consecutive triumph in an official Olympic test event World Cup after prevailing in Bardonecchia (ITA) in 2005, Cypress Mountain (CAN) 2009 and Sochi (RUS) back in 2013. “I have hoped that I can build. It's awesome to be at a test event knowing that I have a whole year to progress,” she added. James atop Over in the men's event, reigning world champion Scotty James added another big win to his palmares earning the highest score of the day with a 96.00 in his third run which consisted of a backside double cork 1260, frontside double cork 1080, cab double cork 1080 and frontside 900 therefore putting so far leading US superstar Shaun White under pressure. But the two-time Olympic gold medallist couldn't step up his game as last to drop in keeping his 95.00 from run one earned for a massive method to frontside double cork 1080, cab double cork 1080, frontside 900 and a final backside double cork 1260. “It's extremely disappointing,” White said. “I absolutely came here to win and do my thing. It was a great test run for the Olympics. Yeah, I think lesson is learned.” Especially as he knew where and when he might lost it today: “The truth is, I rode for two days and then went for shopping in Seoul, then rode qualifying and went back to shop in Seoul. So, I am really tired. By the time I got to my last hit my back leg kinda gave out. So, I'm just disappointed of myself although it's super nice suites I got. So, I hope there is less shopping next time and taking it more serious. But anyway, Scotty had a great run with four magical hits.” And with those four huge hits landed, Scotty James finally had his first ever World Cup win in store: “It feels amazing winning the test event. I absolutely love South Korea. Every run here has been so awesome. The crowds and fans have been so welcoming and very helpful. They put on an awesome pipe here for us to ride, and yeah, I'm really excited. It's twelve months down the track from today. It's going to be another exciting day in one year. And with a halfpipe like that anything is possible. It's going to be awesome.” And that's for sure if the 22-year-old keeps on progressing like the past year. “I put a lot of hard work in 2016, and I kind of continuing on this year as well. I changed up and put a lot of people in place who are pushing me forward to where I want to be. I have got such an amazing team behind me. Me and my coaches have a similar mindset towards where I wanna be. Australia and all my sponsors have been really supportive.” That said, it's obviously that the adjustments pay off. “I'm just trying to develop as a person and as a rider. Being happy is the most important thing for me, and I'm really happy at the moment. And things like this are a plus,” James said with an eye on his Crystal Globe. Yiwei Zhang (CHN), the first rider who had stomped a triple cork in the pipe, rounded out the men's podium as third with a score of 93.25. With the season's last halfpipe World Cup in the books, the great finale of the snowboard freestyle overall World Cup tour is slated to take place in Spindleruv Mlyn (CZE), where a slopestyle competition will wrap up things from March 24 till 25, 2017. However, it's time to battle for gold, silver and bronze at the 12th FIS Snowboard World Championships a fe days before with the title decisions taking place in Sierra Nevada (ESP) from March 7 till 19, 2017.

  14. 12th place, the best seasons relay result achieved at world championships, this is a certainly good result, pitty for the slow skiing times, the top 10 was today very close, but well, we haven´t 4 equal competitors for a top 10 relay so far, even if Michal Šíma really had a good race today, perfect shooting and a decent skiing, surprisingly he was able to fight for the top 10 untill the end. Maybe a better shooting in 3rd leg by Tomáš Hasilla would ranked us among the dreamed ten, but well, what can we do, the guys tried their best, this is just the top of their posibilities they can do right now, but still it´s a fine result compared to the previous relays. In the Nations Cup we moved to 15th place, overpassing Kazakhstan by 5 points. 557 points advantage against 18th Romania for next season World Cup 4 starters and 991 points ahead of Latvia for the 5 WOG quotas. Tomorrow is the last day of the championships with both Mass Starts competitions scheduled. Unfortunately any of our mens did qualified for the grand final, among womens we will have 2 athletes Nastya Kuzmina and Paulína Fialková.

  15. FIS ALPINE SKIING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Women's Slalom Final Results SHIFFRIN Mikaela 1:37.2747.80+49.47 HOLDENER Wendy 1:38.9148.18+50.73 HANSDOTTER Frida 1:39.0248.57+50.43 Golden three-peat in slalom for Shiffrin American Mikaela Shiffrin won the FIS Alpine World Ski Championship slalom gold medal for the third straight time after earning an astonishing 1.64-second victory ahead of Swiss sensation Wendy Holdener. Sweden’s Frida Hansdotter took home the bronze medal 0.11 seconds behind Holdener. It was Shiffrin’s second medal of these championships here in St. Moritz and the fourth total of her career. She also took the slalom gold in Schladming 2013 and in Vail/Beaver Creek 2015. She was absolutely unstoppable on the second run as she built her lead to more than a second by the third interval, and continued to cruise from there. "I didn't see my time until I got all the way through and I knew I had a good run, but I didn't know it was that good until I saw the time," said Shiffrin. "Three medals is great, but today is really special today for me because I finally skied this the way I wanted to and that's what means a lot to me today." Holdener was the hero for the Swiss fans, earning the silver medal, her second of these World Championships after she took gold in the alpine combined last week. “I made a few small mistakes in the second run, so when I heard the speaker say I had the lead I was surprised,” said Holdener. “There was no beating Mikaela today, so I’m really happy with the silver medal and these entire World Championships.” Hansdotter now has three medals in the last three World Championship appearances, with one silver and two bronzes. "It means a lot to me today. I had a lot of pressure so it feels nice to have the medal," said Hansdotter "I've been skiing well the last few years and to get a medal at the last three World Championships is great." Shiffrin led the field after the first run 0.38 seconds ahead of Holdener and 0.59 seconds ahead of Slovakia’s Veronika Velez-Zuzulova. Velez-Zuzulova straddled a gate, ending her hopes for her first individual gold, but she still goes home with a silver medal from the nations team event. After Lara Gut’s season-ending knee injury last week, today’s World Championship gold medal is likely not the only major title the American will win as she has a clear command in the race for the Overall World Cup title. Tomorrow the 2017 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships will come to a close with the 11th medal event, the men’s slalom. The first run is at 9:45 CET and the second run will kick off at 13:00.
