2013 Australasian Champs

March 20, 2013

Logo800This past weekend, while most of us were struggling to follow Emerald City Open on Seattle Swiss, Podium saw 1000 viewers from 300 cities around the world tuning in. Most of these viewers were for the 2013 Australasian Hardcourt  Bike Polo Championships that were held in Timaru, New Zealand.aus

While most of the tournament took place in beautiful New Zealand sunny weather, toward the end of the tournament the heavens opened up and  it started to downpour. Out of the puddles arose Not A Single Fuck Was Given (simple NASFWG for short) as the 2013 Australasian Champions; this is their second year in a row winning the title.  While last year the team consisted of Scottie, Ned, and Prawi from Perth, this year Scottie and Ned picked up Stevie from Ireland/Melbourne to clinch the victory.

Second place went to Melbourne Anchor, who consisted of Damon, Anjia of Melbourne and Mat of London.
Third place went to Triple Dutch Rudders, who consisted of Dom, Ollie from Brisbane and Michie from Berlin.
