World Competition Continues!

Posted: July 15, 2010 by thesank in Uncategorized, World Cup

If you’re sad to see the World Cup leave us for another four years, and not ready to throw away your love for nations vs. nations competition, look no further than to the Men’s World Lacrosse Championships in Manchester, England. Teams representing 30 nations around the world will face-off to see who is indeed, the best in the world. This includes teams from Ireland, France, Austria, Latvia, Mexico, Slovakia, South Korea, Japan, England, Australia, Canada, and the US (to name a few).

To date, there has already been an issue to compete for one of the top teams – Iroquois Nationals. Scheduled to depart a few days ago, the Iroquois Nationals are prohibited from traveling to UK as the consulant refuses to legally acknowledge their passports. Catching nods from the national news, they’ve already given it a few tries, but are now contacting the British Embassy for help. They recently were just given sanction from the US to have travel visas.

The top teams to watch in this tournament would be the US (stacked with many collegiate and MLL all-stars including Ryan Boyle -Boston Cannons, Brendan Mundorf – Denver Outlaws, Drew Westervelt -Denver Outlaws, Paul Rabil – Boston Cannons, Alex Smith – Washington Bayhawks, Shawn Nadelen – Washington Bayhawks, and Kyle Sweeney – Boston Cannons) and Canada (the favorite to win it all – their box lacrosse style has helped to hone in on their outdoor skills), with Australia and Germany bringing up the rear.

With the opening cermonies underway, fans can enjoy these games only on the web at
