WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - America Records Institute (AMRI) Underwater Hockey World Championships: World’s oldest underwater hockey world championship still in operation

24-01-2024

(WorldKings.org) First held in 1980, Underwater Hockey World Championships is the world’s oldest underwater hockey world championship still in operation.

The Underwater Hockey World Championships is the pinnacle event for the underwater sport of underwater hockey. It's held every two years and is organized by the Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques (CMAS), the world governing body for underwater sports.

The competition features teams from all over the world competing in a series of matches to determine the best underwater hockey team in the world.

The matches are played in a swimming pool with a depth of 2-3 meters (6-10 feet). The players use short sticks called "pushers" to propel a puck along the bottom of the pool and into the opponent's goal. The games are fast-paced and exciting, and the players must be able to hold their breath for long periods of time.

The most recent Underwater Hockey World Championships were held in July 2023 in Gold Coast, Australia. New Zealand won the gold medal in the men's elite division, while Australia won the gold medal in the women's elite division.
