DREAMING BIG


In Mexico, the first and only women’s national ice hockey team, the Selección femenil de México de hockey sobre hielo, is defying expectations.


Founded in 2012, in a country where ice rinks are expensive and rare, they became the first Mexican team in the historically male-dominated sport to advance to the second round of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games qualifiers in 2016. They now have their sights on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games.
