Bandy


]In case you've forgotten: what is bandy


Bandy world championships are on and not starting well, but very expectedly.

Russia 14-2 Kazakhstan
Sweden 8-1 Finland
USA 5-10 Norway


Soviet Union/Russia and Sweden have always dominated the sport, both having medals from all 29 tournaments. Finland has 25 medals, 18 bronze, 6 silver and the only championship besides those two from 2004.
Other medalists are Norway (silver and bronze) and Kazakhstan (2 bronze).


Looks like it'll be the usual Russia-Sweden final and Finland playing for bronze.

Re: Bandy


Finland - Kazakhstan 6-5
Sweden - Norway 13-2
Russia - USA 19-5

Now that was a game.
0-1
0-2
1-2
1-3
2-3 (on last minute of first half)
3-3
4-3
5-3
5-4
5-5 (3 minutes before end)
6-5 (on last minute)

Pity it just doesn't mean much, just about which one of us gets to lose semifinal to Russia and which to Sweden.
But there's going to be quite a rematch in bronze game.

Re: Bandy


Norway - Finland 5-9
USA - Kazakhstan 4-9
Russia - Sweden 7-4

So pretty much as expected the semifinals tomorrow are Finland - Sweden and Russia - Kazakhstan. Now would be a good time for first upset of the games...

Re:


Championships on again and so far it looks real good.

Finland played draw with Sweden 5-5 and surprisingly won hometeam Russia 4-3 so we have good chance to win preliminary round (unless Sweden wins Russia and has better goal difference than we), which would give us easy semifinal and almost certain place in final.
And after FIVE consecutive bronzes, that'd be sweet.
