Czechs finish fourth at “home” Floorball World Championships

The Czech Republic have come fourth at the Floorball World Championships, after losing 4:5 to Switzerland in a game to decide third place in Prague on Sunday. The match was tied at 4:4 at full time, with the Swiss – who also took bronze in the competition two years ago – winning the tie with a goal in the 70th minute. Some 13,211 spectators attended the game at the O2 Arena, the third highest attendance in the history of the World Championships and the highest ever seen at a floorball game in the Czech Republic. Finland beat Sweden 7:6 after extra time in the final - the first time Sweden have failed to win the World Championships.
