Post Great Britain Ice Hockey Gold Medal
GB Ice hockey team did the unthinkable yesterday and won the gold medal on their IIHF qualifying group which means they will compete against the best teams in the world in next years world championships. They beat Hungary in their final game 3-2 in front of 8500 Hungarian home fans. This is a huge feat for a nation that receives no government funding and is shunned by every tv station who would rather show ladies netball with very small crowds than EIHL ( British League ) with very good attendance and certainly more exciting.
Captain of GB is from Cardiff and Cardiff Devils provided 4 players in the squad.
A fantastic achievement that has almost gone unnoticed in the British media.

It is a tremendous ground breaker - it was 1994 when we last competed at the top level ...
