Hockey


Ice hockey, or simply "hockey" as it is known in Canada, became an Olympic Sport at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. Canada didn't have a national team, so it was represented by the Winnipeg Falcons. The jersey that you see here is the way cool jersey that they wore when they won the gold medal.
Winnipeg is a great city in Canada. I really want to go there. Not only is it the home of Canada's 1st Olympic hockey champions but it is home of Canada's most famous Rock Star. The picture above shows how beautiful Winnipeg is.

  1. Hello Mr. Stout.
    Thank you for telling me about Canada. Just now I went to Yahoo Canada and I checked how many medals Canada got. If I am right, now Canada is the 5th place. I expect Canada will get more medals!(I hope Japan will)
