Great Britain completed their three-on-three tournament at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in South Korea with a victory and defeat on the final day of group games.

A 10-3 victory over Chinese Taipei was followed bv a 22-13 defeat by higher-ranked Kazakhstan.

GB, who were seed number six in the tournament, finished sixth in the eight-team group and also recorded an impressive 8-5 victory against Spain.

Head Coach, Danny Meyers, said: “We finished with our best performances which is remarkable considering how physically demanding this tournament has been. The players learnt what competing at the highest level looks like.

“By the end they were blocking shots, winning board battles, playing heavy in front of both nets and stopping on pucks. Above all, they learnt what playing for Great Britain is truly like.

“The three-on-three concept has been an overwhelming success and all the nations that have competed are all in agreement that the skills learnt in the format will be hugely beneficial for the five-on-five game. These players came here as boys and left as young men.”

The Youth Olympic Games is a three-on-three tournament and is played cross-ice, with no more than three players per team on the ice at once plus a goalie.

Two games take place simultaneously and the format makes for exciting hockey and big scorelines.
