That makes all 6 populated continents. Bike polo is now global and can apply for olympic exhibition game status.

Drew Combs from LEX spent this past year in Zambia and taught a village how to play hardcourt (dirt) polo. He showed me a few videos but i don't think they've reached the web yet. Six continents indeed though!!!!

Now who's up for antarctic ice polo??

Yea I was talking to Drew about this and he said they picked it up very quickly and their where a some good players. (Drew where you at we ant stories!)

wait this is actually occurring in Africa? i thought it was in Paris but to benefit Africa...

my thoughts exactly. I don't think it's actually being played on African soil.

You are right, it's being played in paris, but all benefits will go to an humanitarian organisation working in africa. Anyway, it will be so cool to see african polo team at some point.

Sorry, got carried away and forgot how to read French. But the peace corps team in Zambia still counts. And We've got friends here in Chicago who send containers full of bikes to Ghana every year. Just need to throw in some mallets next time.
