A toast to our unknown champions

Never heard of the Darwin Ice Hockey Club? I hadn’t either until this week. Our ignorance is surprising really, given that the club holds the world championship in this sport. By all accounts, they’re legends, having never lost a match. So Vegemite made an ad to celebrate the men known as “the pride of the Territory”.

Despite facing a few challenges (namely not having an ice rink), the Darwin Ice Hockey Club members don’t appear too concerned. I couldn’t help but think of ‘Cool Runnings’ and Jamaica’s bobsled team while watching this video. 

Don’t miss out on Australian humour at its best. And, remember, if the opposition doesn’t show up – that’s a win to you!
