In a match watched by dozens of people worldwide, Hong Kong’s snow polo team trounced Argentina in the Snow Polo World Cup in Tianjin. The three-person Hong Kong team are legendary in the snow polo circuit, and have won every World Cup ever. (The event was started last year.)
South China Morning Post chronicles the impressive legacy of snow polo in Hong Kong:
Michael Wong did the Cantonese commentary for TVB Pearl during the Tianjin tournament.
He said polo, let alone snow polo, was not actually played in Hong Kong so players practised and competed in Europe, North America, Southeast Asia or on the mainland.
An impressive and distinguished legacy, reaching back almost twelve months. With the same three guys. And from a place that doesn’t play the game. You can check out Shanghaiist’s extensive Snow Polo coverage here.
