Most athletes never get to play for their country at even one world championship


And most journalists are never ever mentioned at Floorballcentral.org

Today we want to give the plastic version of the "Purr-blitzer" price to Paul Svoboda, The Intelligencer in Canada.
Our motivation states - "for consistent reporting on a ground-breaking topic that has the power to change young peoples life for ever".
Mr. Svoboda is a shooting-iron journalist that cover Floorball in Canada and all of America's far beyond any other journalist.

Let's quote him from yesterday;
"Relatively new to Canada, the sport was introduced to Belleville five years ago by Moira teacher-coach Todd Crawford, and the city now has its own league and the game is growing in popularity, says Tipping.
“It's addictive and a lot of fun,” she said. “Todd pushes it too, but he always told us that if we liked it, great; if we didn't, that was no problem too.”
Tipping says floorball is catching on in Canada due in large part to its similarities to hockey. That's also why, she believes, the Canadian senior women finished 13th in the Czech Republic at the 2013 Worlds after being ranked 21st."

Mr. Svoboda's last masterpiece on Canadian Floorball is to be found here:
It is a story about a young athlete, Ms. Tipping, that is up to represent her country for the third time. If you like Floorball or hockey it is a well worth read...

Caution

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!
