A lot of people thought Finland won’t succeed in 2019 Ice Hockey World Championships because we didn’t have NHL players. But our team showed those doubters they were all wrong. This not so famous team wins all these big ice hockey countries, Sweden, Russia and Canada. Winning a championship is such a sumptuous thing and I still can’t believe Finland is a champion. I watched all the Finnish games and there were both disappointments and joy. The team proved the whole world you don’t need to have millions to win. Finland’s ice hockey team is a team with a big T.
Ice hockey is such a big thing in Finland. It’s our 3rd championships. You could say the whole country goes crazy. In some cities they do. Some go overboard though but they can blame themselves if they get hurt. Personally, I’m just happy and then I move on. At this moment they show the celebrations in Helsinki on TV. I’m so proud of those guys. They didn’t give up and they really deserve this win. No one will ever take this away from them. This is a great day to be a Finn. Until the next ice hockey championship.
