TWG 2017 Day 2 (Sat, July 22): Report, videos and images

What an exciting second day of korfball competition in this remarkable World Games 2017 in Wroclaw (POL). Today’s first match between China and Australia surprised everyone with a spectacular and very close game. Australia won 23-25 for the first time since many years, and tomorrow will play against The Netherlands.

The 2nd game Chinese Taipei – Great Britain became a little bit disapointing for the European team. Only in the first half the score was close between the two teams, but there were no real options in the 3rd and 4th quarter to go back and win the Asian squad. Final score: 23-16.

The Netherlands and Belgium played today’s third game. Another clash won by the Dutch team 24-16, with a huge gap at the beginning of the game that determined the final score.

The last match of the day was Poland vs. Germany. The Deustch squad played a very serious game, that allowed them to score with regularity and take advantage very early, keeping it until the end of the match. Final score: 15-25.

After this second day of competition, the ranking pools so far are:

This Saturday we also received very special guests to our korfball games: NOC Polish President, Mr. Andrzej Kraśnicki, and honorary IWGA President Mr. Ron Froehlich. They enjoyed great and exciting matches!

TWG 2017 Day 1: Report, videos and images

Korfball competition has started! The first game of The World Games 2017 between Chinese Taipei and Germany showed how spectacular, intense and exciting a korfball game can be. Three wonderful first quarters made the audience enjoy and see the great level of these two squads. The final 22-14 in favour of the Asian team doesn’t show the real close game they played.

The 2nd game was clearly decided from the very beginning. China was playing against the Dutch champion, and there were no surprises. A 33-10 win for The Netherlands, that will play a much difficult game on Day 2 against Belgium.

At 19:00, team Poland played versus Great Britain, and the extra motivation of the Polish made them play not as good as they wanted. Only in the 2nd half they started to play more calm and relax, and the goals arrived. On the other hand, Great Britain scored really well during the whole match, winning the game 11-23.

The last match between Belgium and Australia (26-8) was also an easy game for the European team, but it was nice to see the great progress that the Australian squad is doing at all levels. Let’s see what are they capable to do on Day 2 against team China.

Furthermore, we are very happy to have received the visit of the Sports Director of the International Olympic Committee to our korfball competition.
