Whether it has been reported by the mainstream media or not, fights at the Olympics between hockey players have definitely happened. It’s just hard to believe that at such big stage when emotions are so high and everyone is playing with that ‘do or die’ mindset one wouldn’t get into a fight with the competitor in heat of the moment. It’s high stake. What would you do when after preparing for 4 years, you’re about to lose? Of course, you will be frustrated and angry. So fighting is normal.
However, the players are to restrain themselves. Because fight at the Olympics will get you out from that game and the next one! This isn’t the case at the regular matches where the player in question will be sent out of the ground for 4 or 5 minutes.
Now if you’re looking for the exact names of hockey players who fought at the Olympics, it’s hard to name them. Because usually such incidents go unreported in the extravaganza that is Olympics.
But here’s a recently happened fight in Ice Hockey between Tom Wilson and Alex Petrovic.
