2008 Canoe Polo World Championships

2008 Canoe Polo World Championships

Welcome, Uncommon Sportsfans, to the 2008 Canoe Polo World Championships. You've never heard of Canoe Polo? Well, let me get you up to speed. It's basically water polo in a canoe, but with raised goals. Dissimilar from Marco Polo, expensive equipment is required.

So you're all aboard, right? Want to form a team and compete for the world title? Well set a date for next year because this year's world title event is already taking place in that craziest of crazy outdoor arenas... Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!
