As if I had to tell you, the Balver Malmmuts beat the Blade Pirates 2-0 to win the gold medal at the Official World Cup of Segway in Stockholm, Sweden on Sunday. We’re talking about Segway polo — a sport invented in 2004 by none other than Apple’s Steve Wozniak, and from 2006 until this year known as the Woz Challenge Cup.

Although invented in the San Francisco Bay Area, Segway Polo is popular in several countries: among them Germany, Sweden, Finland, New Zealand, Austria, Barbados and yes, Lebanon. Fun fact: New Zealand’s team is called the Pole Blacks.
