WINNIPEG FALCONS 1920-2020

COMMEMORATIVE POND HOCKEY EVENT

TOOK PLACE MARCH 7, 2020 1-3 PM

The Winnipeg Falcons was a hockey team of the early 20th century that was made up almost solely of players of Icelandic heritage.

They won the first-ever Olympic Gold Medal in hockey!

 

 

The Gimli Ice Festival Hosted A Special Pond Hockey Event

To Commemorate This Incredible Feat That Took Place 100 Years Ago.

We Were Honoured To Have Descendants From the Original Team Attend This Event

This “Winnipeg Falcons” extended Heritage Minute tells the story of a team of Icelandic-Canadians who served in the First World War before bringing home the very first gold medal in Olympic hockey.

This CBC National segment recognizes the "Winnipeg Falcons" 100th Anniversary Commemorative Pond Hockey Event that took place on March 7th during the Gimli Ice Festival.
