Modern ice hockey was invented in Canada, where it is the national sport. It is also very popular in the United States and Scandinavia. Ice hockey is one of the standout events at the Winter Olympics, which has witnessed a number of epic duels between teams from the (now defunct) USSR, Canada, United States, Finland, Sweden and the Czech Republic, to name a few of the best-known.
In addition to the Winter Olympics, the Ice Hockey World Championships and the NHL (National Hockey League, in which teams from Canada and the US compete to win the historic Stanley Cup) are the best-known and most prestigious international competitions in this exciting and demanding sport.
