Bronze medals Guyana’s greatest hockey accomplishment
-says GHB president Philip Fernandes
Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) President Phillip Fernandes says that the recent Pan American Hockey Federation Indoor Cup success of the national men’s side is the greatest indoor accomplishment Guyana has achieved at the international level.
Speaking in an exclusive interview following Guyana’s bronze medal showing at the 2014 Indoor Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF) Cup in Uruguay, Fernandes said: “The Guyana Men’s hockey team pulled of a very difficult feat in securing bronze medal in the PAHF Indoor Cup.
“Guyana suffers mostly from a lack of facilities on which the sport can be played in Guyana which has kept our numbers at modest amounts and also severely restricts our ability to prepare as thoroughly as our opposition.
