We are The Champions! A resounding victory for Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club at SO! DALIAN Beach Polo World Cup!
20 June 2015 – Under the sunny blue skies of Dalian, our Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club (MPC) galloped to a spectacular victory in the grand final of SO! DALIAN 2nd Beach Polo World Cup with a win of 5 goals to 2 over Air France.
Team captain John Fisher started the rally with the team’s first goal when the tournament opened. Mauro Gomes quickly followed this with the second goal. As tight as the play was during the second chukka, Fisher went through with the team’s third goal with his manoeuvres.
The club’s youth player Arthur Lin was fielded during the third chukka, and proved his mettle with a fourth goal, and Fisher scored the fifth. During the last minutes, Air France managed to step up and scored two goals. But our MPC team sealed the victory with its dazzling performance during the match.
The victory was made sweeter especially since this is the first time that MPC has fielded amateur players cum father-son team William Lin and Arthur Lin in a competitive polo tournament. Especially for Arthur, he has showed that he has grown from strength through his contribution to the tournament.
“We are here to promote polo and we hope that everyone enjoys the game.”, said Domenico Palumbo, the General Manager of the club, yesterday. Indeed, the MPC team has dazzled every spectators with their skills, making this a fantastic conclusion to the SO! DALIAN 2nd Beach Polo World Cup!
MPC take this opportunity to thank the organiser, their members who supported us, and our team! See you next year!
