    I can see it catching on wherever it’s cold enough or maybe artificial ice in swimming pools but it will be quite specialised given you need lungs like a whale.

    Or several, well placed, holes in the ice.

    Talking about hockey Great Britain Beat France 4-3 in the World Hockey Championships which means they will get to play in 2020!!! I think last time that happened was 1994! So a big Congrats to Great Britain.

    Still need to be whalesque, really cold water and being physically active, and you’ve got targets to meet while your down there, not you stees, you’d be fine, 😊
    But I could see it being adapted, to say an Olympian size pool, I think their on to something here.
    Relating to another thread, if your sitting at the side of an Olympic size pool with a cover displaying holes at regular intervals and someone says “what do you think of the hockey” you can assume their referring to this hockey. But I still think it’s more of a spectators sport 😟

    I don't think it will catch on big.

    No it wouldl be a niche sport. I have no figures on the popularity of Free Diving but I don’t imagine it’s a mass participation sport.

    Hockey played under the ice, I don't think would be a real popular sport. One would have to be a diver to start with. You only have oxygen for so much time. I don't assume there would be any body contact. Don't think it would be much of a spectator sport. Then again I never thought the Trumpster would be come President. 😉
