The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are rapidly approaching! We’re all extremely excited. National teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising!
Japan brought a team to Melbourne, Australia to take on an Aussie side in an international friendly match this Summer. The game was played in June, and both teams brought competitive squads, focused on improving for the 2014 World Championships in Denver this Summer.
Earlier this week we put up a video from 2010, featuring a Japan Hidden Ball Trick. The announcers called it the first successful hidden ball trick, but we knew that couldn’t be true. Thanks to Kentaro Shimizu, we now KNOW that the statement was false, because we’ve got video evidence from 2006!
If you believe the announcers on the video, this is the first time the hidden ball trick has ever been successfully pulled off at the World Championships. I can’t imagine that is actually true, as Canada has been playing in that thing forever, but that’s not the point.
China (along with Peru) has become the newest Associate Member Nation of the Federation of International Lacrosse. So what does this mean for the sport of lax internationally? BIG THINGS!
