British Bandy team makes history in Sweden

5:38 min

Great Britain won the European Bandy championship in 1913. But after the outbreak of the First World War, the winter sport disappeared all together from the British Isles.

Now over a hundred years later, a British bandy team has once again taken to the ice at the World Bandy Championships in Sweden. And as Radio Sweden reports, Swedes are playing a key role in this sporting renaissance.
