The wind blows
There are quite a few sports that have become popular pastimes over the years. However not many of them can compare to the popularity enjoyed by ice hockey. It enjoys the highest number of followers in Canada, with millions of people heading down to their closest ice rink to, either watch their favorite local teams take on their cross town rivals, or to play a few pickup games themselves. There are also several teams in the National Hockey League (NHL) that are based in the country, while the national championship, known as the Stanley Cup, can also trace back its origins to Canada. The national ice hockey teams are also among the country’s most successful sports teams to date and have taken part in almost every major international tournament over the years.
The men’s team played its first game over a hundred years ago, while their female counterparts played their first official game in 1987. The men’s team won its first Olympic medal in 1920, and has since won nine gold, four silver, and two bronze medals. They have also won twenty five World Championships, four Canada Cups, the 1972 Summit Series as well as the 2004 World Cup. Meanwhile, their women’s team has managed to win four Olympic Gold Medals, ten World Championships, fourteen Nations Cups and two Pacific Rim Championships.
The leaves fall
As far as popularity is concerned, the only other game that can come even close to hockey in Canada is Lacrosse. It is one of the oldest games played in the region, and has been around for over five hundred years. As a result, they have one of the best national teams in the world and have finished third or above in every world championship to date. They have managed to win two Olympic gold medals and one bronze medal. On top of that, they have also clinched two gold, six silver, and three bronze medals at the World Championships.
Another game that has enjoyed a great reputation all over the country has been soccer, with both their national women’s and men’s teams enjoying varying degrees of success. Their men’s team played their first game over a hundred and twenty years ago, while their women’s team made their debut in 1986. The men’s side has won quite a lot to date, including two CONCACAF Gold Cups, a North American Nations Cup and a Gold medal at the 1904 Olympic Games. Their women’s team has also enjoyed great success, winning two CONCACAF Championships, an International Women's Football Tournament in 2010, a gold medal at the Pan-American Games, as well as three Cyprus Cups.
Look to the sky
