2015 World Hockey Championships

Czech Republic hosted the 2015 World Hockey Championships over the past two weeks.  Ice hockey is a very big deal over here.

The championships were co-hosted by Prague and Ostrava.  Matches in Prague were at the O2 Arena and in Ostrava they were held at the ČEZ Aréna.

Canada took the gold with a 6-1 victory over Russia who took the silver.  The best part for me was that the USA beat Czechland 3-0 for the bronze.  It's going to fun at work tomorrow reminding folks that the Czechs lost the bronze to the Americans.

As a consolation prize, Czech hockey superstar Jaromír Jágr did earn Most Valuable Player.
