Hockey players use a lot of different exercises to warm up and prepare for an intense 60-minute game.
The Boston Bruins, and several other teams, kick around a soccer ball to bond and work up a sweat. At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, the Finnish men’s hockey team, which includes Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, traveled on bikes to Bolshoy Ice Dome for its first preliminary round game against Austria. Every player found a bicycle and got some exercise as they made their way from the Olympic Village to the arena.
Sochi has been experiencing spring-like weather for most of the week, making a nice bike ride through the Olympic park an enjoyable experience.
Check out the Finnish team’s bikes in the photos below.
