Canada, Pakistan join IISHF
Both Canada and Pakistan have agreed to join the IISHF – the international federation for full contact inline hockey with a ball. All parties came to an agreement at the AGM in Amsterdam on February 26th and 27th. We didn’t know people in Pakistan played inline hockey and we sure didn’t know people in Canada are playing ‘inline-skaterhockey’ (as they call it). Troy Taz Singh Byrnes (2nd from the left) is the representative for Canada and looks like a cool guy in between all those suits. Both countries will participate in the ‘Open’ European Championships this year in Austria (Sept. 9-11). Let’s hope they don’t call it World Championships next year.
