“I hope the auction is a success and we can help the guys at the Children’s Sledge Hockey League to keep playing their favorite game. We need to look out for these kids, to help and support them so that they understand that nothing is beyond them, and they can also play hockey.”

Sledge hockey bronze for Russia

Russia’s sledge hockey team, fresh from success in a home tournament in Sochi, won World Championship bronze in Ostrava. Saturday’s 7-0 thrashing of South Korea — Paralympic bronze medallists in 2018 — secured the country’s first medal in six years and gives the program a real boost ahead of the 2022 Games in Beijing. It might have been even better for Ruslan Batyrshin’s team: the semi-final against Canada ended in a narrow 1-2 loss, with Evgeny Petrov denied a tying goal by Greg Westlake five minutes before the hooter. Russian forward Nikolai Terentiev finished as the leading scorer in the tournament with 17 (9+8) points.

Andrei Sokolov is now looking to build on this competition and go for bigger honors in Beijing. “Before Beijing, we will look back at every mistake we made against Canada in the semi-finals because at the Paralympic Games our goal will be the gold medal.”
