Australia vs Russia a quick comment


A Kangaroo jump - Linked via the IFF

What is so utterly interesting with Australia is that many players are from a field hockey culture. We think we have seen before that some Australian Floorball teams all play righty - since so many has been schooled in a field hockey environment - with players using sticks only on one side.

Today they met Russia, and as most of you know Russia and its culture is very much revolving around Ice Hockey - and most likely - many of the Russian Floorball players that played in the World Floorball Championships today - has played some rather advanced ice hockey too.

This time field Hockey won... does that mean field hockey is a better foundation - as from a more cultural perspective as we talk about cross skills from other sports?
Nope we do not think so - but doubtless Australia seems to be a little ahead of Russia today as it comes to the more specific for of Hockey we care about here - Floorball.

Yes we though Russia would win this too... Good work Australia..
and a
Big congrats to Australia... this is good for Asian Floorball.

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!
