The Czech Republic played an incredible game against Sweden beating them by 6 points and making them this year’s Gold Medal Champions. The battle for gold was a strong one. Shots were taken in first period, but nothing came of it. In the second period, however, the Czechs came with a new hunger and obliterated the competition. This is the first time any team other than Finland and Sweden have won gold in any Men’s league. History was made in Halifax, Nova Scotia this year and a new future for floorball.
