NOT BOXING OR MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, THIS SPORT STILL ALLOWS PLAYERS TO MAKE FIGHTS ON THE COMPETING PITCH

The „battle“ between two or many players is only drawn to an end when one of them falls down to the ground. At that moment, the referee will take out his mission to stop the fight before it goes way too far.

Ice hockey is an interesting sport which takes part on the ice pitch between 2 teams, each team features around 6 players who use their sticks to draw a vulcanized rubber puck (the diameter of 3 inch – 76,2 mm) into their opponent’s net to score goals(hockey).

Puck is usually utilized under the condition of being frozen before each play with harshly cold temperatures to reduce bouncing and friction on ice. Ice hockey is a popular sport in North America and Europe.

America, Canada, Finland, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia… are some special nations which are especially fond of this sport. Ice hockey is played and performed at different levels and by different ages.

The organization which executes international American football plays is called The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). Ice hockey was firstly performed at the Winter Olympics taking place in 1924 as well as made appearance in the 1920 Winter Olympic for the first time. It has been played until now. The ice hockey for females was added into the sports categories in the Winter Olympics of 1998.

Ice hockey is often played under very harsh, high-competitive condition, therefore sometimes, ice hockey players find it hard to take their speeds under control, thus, cause unexpected conflicts between 2 or many people.

The ice hockey tournament taking place in North America has a really weird feature: It allows players between 2 competing teams to fight against each other to solve all the conflicts on the ice pitch. This is also considered to be an effective method to show off the braveness and masculinity.
