Czechs are the best: Czechia become ice hockey world champions

World Hockey Championship Win

Czechia has just become the ice hockey world champions! The win in the World Hockey Championship has filled us with joy, excitement and pride. It was a moment of celebration for all of us.

On Sunday, David Pastrnak broke a scoreless tie with 10:47 remaining in the third period as his Czech team faced off against Switzerland in the gold-medal game at the 2024 IIHF World Championship.

David Kampf added an empty-net tally with 19 seconds remaining in regulation time, and Lukas Dostal made 31 saves for his third shutout of the tournament.

Coming into the tournament as the eighth-ranked country in the hockey world, the Czechs’ last gold medal at the men’s top level came back in 2010. Since then, they’ve won bronze three times — in 2011, 2012 and 2022.

Nine years after a tournament attendance record was set in Prague and Ostrava in 2015, the same two Czech cities played host in 2024. This time, even more impassioned fans came out, raising the record by more than 50,000 to 797,727.
