Could you believe this, Haiti is making a name for itself in a sport that you probably would not believe. Haiti's national street hockey team has become the winner of the B-pool of the Street Hockey World Championship. The team defeated the Cayman Islands
Haiti's First-Time Win of Hockey Trophy
In a surprise win, Haiti's National Street Hockey Team (NSHT) beat the Cayman Islands 4-2 to earn the championship trophy in Switzerland. Haiti, not very experienced in the sport, was carried to victory with the aid of Haitian-Canadian players.
The International Street and Hockey Federation eased up on the rules to allow the Haitian-Canadian players to participate using their superior puck skills to nab the trophy. NSHT was coached by Haitian-Canadian Georges Laraque.
