Norway vs Sweden ice sledge hockey game, at the UBC Thunderbird Winter Sports Centre, Vancouver.

The ice sledge hockey competition of the 2010 Winter Paralympics was held at the UBC Winter Sports Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, from 13 March to 20 March 2010.

For the first time, women were allowed to compete in ice sledge hockey at the Paralympic Games.[1]

Following high hopes in the host nation, Canada's defeat in the semi-finals was described as causing "national despair".[2]

Qualification[edit]

Eight teams of up to fifteen people (sixteen if at least one woman is included on the roster[3]) took part in the competition. Six slots were reserved for the top six finishers at the 2009 IPC Ice Sledge Hockey World Championships, one slot was reserved for the winner of the 2009 IPC Ice Sledge Hockey Paralympic Qualifier, and one slot was reserved for the host country, Canada. Since Canada placed in the top six of the World Championships, the eighth slot was given to the second-place finisher at the Paralympic Qualifier.

The six teams which qualified due to their performance at the 2009 World Championships were Canada, the Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Norway and the United States. The next four finishers at the World Championships (Estonia, Germany, South Korea and Sweden) competed in the Paralympic Qualifier from 9 to 13 November 2009. Sweden and South Korea took first and second, respectively, in the qualifying tournament, securing the final two 2010 Winter Paralympic slots.

Team rosters[edit]

The rules promulgated by the International Paralympic Committee provide that each participating NPC may enter a maximum of:

One men's team of fifteen eligible male athletes; or
One mixed team of up to sixteen eligible athletes of whom a minimum of one of the athletes is female.[4]

It was reported that this decision was taken without consulting Canada, the reigning champion in the sport. Hockey Canada announced that there would be no women on the Canadian ice sledge hockey roster at the Paralympics, because no Canadian women play at that level. At the 2006 Paralympics in Turin, Sweden attempted to put a female player on their roster, but were not allowed to do so.[5]
