England, the nation that gave polo its famous moniker ‘the game of kings’, reclaimed its crown yesterday with a hard-fought win over Hong Kong China in the final of the Fortune Heights Snow Polo World Cup 2014.
After a thrilling four chukkas, England trotted off the field 6 – 5 the victors, and in so doing, denied their opponents Hong Kong China a third successive championship victory. Jubilant, the English trio of Max Routledge, Jack Richardson and Max Charlton had finally settled the score against their fierce rivals Hong Kong China, a team that had beaten them on almost every occasion at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club.
With the Fortune Heights Snow Polo World Cup 2014 concluded, polo fans in China and around the world can now look ahead to an exciting programme of events coming later in the year at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club, including the Metropolitan Polo Classic 2014, the Metropolitan Intervasity Polo 2014, and the FIP Super Nations Cup 2014.
And you will of course get to discover an exhibition of Polo in Deauville on 6 September during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy !
