Silver for GB Ice Crushers at Winter World Masters

Earlier this month, a team from Great Britain secured silver at the Winter World Masters in Lombardy, Italy.

The Games, organised by the International Masters Games Association, provide an opportunity for all athletes to compete, regardless of age.

The GB Ice Crushers, who were formed specifically to take part in the competition, boasted a combined age of 935 and an average age of 52.

By taking part, they became the first-ever British ice hockey team (men or women) to compete in the International Olympic Association-endorsed event.

The Winter World Masters acted as a test event for Milan, who will host the 2026 Winter Olympics.

Entrants from Canada and the US featured alongside GB in the ice hockey competition and the Ice Crushers – featuring athletes from the current WNIHL competition – performed admirably throughout and are undoubtedly a real inspiration to many.

Everyone at England Ice Hockey would like to congratulate GB Ice Crushers on their fantastic achievements in Italy.
