Peter Forsberg part 1 of 2

We are so sorry there is no closed captions or translation to this...
We have now updated a rough commentary to this so you get an idea of what they talk about - at least.

First he is presented as one of the world's best Ice Hockey players with Olympic, World Championship and Stanley Cup Golds.
It is then confirmed that he now, or since the spring of 2012, own a part of the main Exel company with the rights to distribute Floorball products in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The two main Exel products Peter talks about is Floorball sticks and poles for skiing. He also confirms that he both played Floorball and were also active as a skier as youngster.
As Mr. Larnö and Mr. Forsberg engages in a competition in speed shooting, checking and scoring penalties. Mr. Forsberg is rather concerned since he claim he never had a hard shot - not in any sport.

As a comment on how to become very good at for instance Hockey.. Mr. Forsberg say that it is crucial to have fun and he is rather doubtful about advanced training for 5-6 year old kids and that you should not start to train in a more serious manner until you reach perhaps, 14-15 years of age.
Mr. Larnö wins the speed shooting with 108-107 km/h... But he also question if the speed shooting equipment is calibrated in the very best way....

Mr. Forsberg acknowledges then that he the very same morning been out doing though cross country ski exercises, with one of Sweden's best skiers and that himself is going to Italy in a few days time to race in a larger Italian ski race.

The discussions continues into the more physical game of Hockey and some hints is shared on how to improve this part of the game. Peter say that it is important to do physical moves a bit ahead of what is expected and deceive the move, to make it look like it is not on its way - it is also important that the point of balance is low and that you become compact too...
The images themselves - will then tell you who won the physical contest this time

As the crucial questions come - why do you invest in Floorball?
Mr. Peter Forsberg say that he has always loved to play Floorball, the he say that Exel represents a strong brand offering good products and they have almost been in Floorball since he started to play himself.

He continues to describe the difference as he was a youngster as Floorball then was just an additional little activity to Hockey - whereas today he describes this as something completely different and is own big sport - he also refers to top performers like Magnus Svensson from Warberg and the level players like him perform at.
Forsberg also mentions that Floorball is spreading in other countries to - he wraps up this movie by saying - "No this is a product I believe in and Floorball is a good sport"

From our own point of view - we think that what Klubbhuset and Mr. Larnoe are producing - IT IS not only top notch Floorball promotional stuff. It is also some of the best TV we have ever seen - in most genres...
It is one sour matter - and that is the language - why do they keep this in the sandbox? Closed captions are not that tricky and translations for such are available too - it is a pity that Exel's and Peters largest potential market - can not understand the full scope of this movie.

However, as we will continue to whine about this, Klubbhuset has promised another excellent movie in two day time on Peter Forsberg.
We promise - with no closed captions - we will write another commentary if it so fully mess up our day here...

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
