The Sledge Hockey Continental Cup concludes in Sochi today. The four-team tournament was organized by the Russian Paralympic Committee, the KHL and the Russian Federation of Sport for People with Physical Impairments. The tournament winner was already determined on Sunday when Russia ‘A’ clinched top spot, but the battle for the remaining places is still very much alive.

Live broadcast – 15:00 (GMT+3). Russia ‘B’ vs Germany

Live broadcast – 19:00 (GMT+3). Russia ‘A’ vs Slovakia

Monday was a rest day for the teams and the organizers ensured there was a busy program for all the athletes. To start the day, the teams enjoyed a yacht trip on the Black Sea before returning to dry land for a tour of Sochi city. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed a look around the attractions of Russia’s southern resort.


Three teams retain a theoretical chance of claiming second place in today’s games. The first game pits Russia ‘B’ against Germany. If the Russians win that one, they would be assured of the silver medals, regardless of the outcome of the evening match-up between Russia ‘A’ and Slovakia. However, the Germans are just one point behind and could secure the runner-up spot with victory this afternoon. Slovakia, too, could get there in the event of a German victory in overtime and an unexpected win against a powerful Russia ‘A’ team that has won two games with a goal differential of 14-0.
