Hockey is a very popular sport in some cold countries like Russia and Canada. Russian people like hockey very much and our hockey teams are very strong. We can't say that they are the strongest, but we can defeat a strong opponent. The Soviet Union joined the International Ice Hockey Federation in 1952. Our team defeated Canada 7-2 in the gold medal game and would remain a power in international hockey until the breakup of the Soviet Union.
