DVD Verdict: Watching this documentary, 'Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey' I felt so much pride as they skate and play towards winning the Gold. They skate, check and score highlight-reel goals just like the NHLers, it has to be said. They're tough and talented, just watch them make a breakaway, it'll make you an instant fan!
But because of their strength, their skill, their determination to win at all costs, the training is tough! Especially here as the U.S. Sled Hockey team prepares for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
hockey, called "murderball on blades," is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey - but these players battle with their sticks, sharp sled runners and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds. They fight it out at eye level with a fast-moving puck in this game of force, speed and strategy.
So yeah, they fight through so much and battle through it all to get that Gold medal in their hands. At all costs, as some games proof beyond a shadow of a doubt! I wish I had half their drive and heart for athletics! GO USA!!! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
