In the middle of the match for third place, the Czech team was already losing 0:2, and everything pointed to the usual result that our floorball players bring from the World Championship – fourth place, which would be the sixth “potato” in a row.
But then the Czechs took over, Vanessa Rebecca Keprtová scored two goals, they turned the match into a final result of 5:4 and won the coveted medal for Singapore. This is the second overall and the first since 2011.

On the contrary, the Swiss leave the World Championships empty-handed for the first time since this year. After Sweden and Finland, they are the third most successful women’s national team in non-Olympic sports.
It was the Scandinavian countries who faced each other in the final match. The Swedes already took a decisive lead in the first half, winning 6:0. Although the Finns pushed hard from the end of the second period, their efforts did not result in a turnaround and the match ended 6:4.
Sweden celebrates its eleventh overall title and its ninth in a row. The last time the representatives of the Nordic countries did not win was in 2005, when the championship was held, like this year, in Singapore.
Although floorball is not on the list of Olympic sports, it has grown in the Czech Republic in recent years. The men have won a medal at the last two world championships. Read more here:
