Congratulation to Dagh on his third world cup title. He beat Gianni in an amazing final that was decided on a single goal (5-6, 5-3). Well done also to the Italian Final Boss who won his 12th World Cup medal!

Incredible final, well done Dagh and well done Gianni for reaching yet ANOTHER final and so close.!

Have to say that the whole 'screen on the Internet' was incredible to watch - it was like KOA's version of Twich, you could watch the players faces as well as the game, I was watching on a 49" 4K television every match on Sunday - wow was like being there without being there and the final was so tense!

I remember a really good block by Dagh in the final seconds when Gianni was almost clear for a narrow angle, Gianni let out a little bravo, he knew this wasn't his day!

Congrats again to Daddy Dagh :) a worth World Champion, I was worried he would not come back and be the Dagh of Old, but I was wrong! incredible performance.

I have to add that having the matches on my Television at home was great, but we really need to teach Robert how to NOT swear..... :) :) :)

My kids kept asking me 'what did that posh guy just scream daddy?'

Increcible performance by Dagh indeed. Congratulations!!!

I'm just so sorry I had to leave before the finals started, that's one of my fave parts of the World Cup. I got a bit of it though, sitting on the ferry, wathcing the stream on Facebook.

And kudos goes to Gianni, managing a second place, losing such a tight final, just getting to the final, considering he spends the entire weekend making sure the format runs smoothly, answering questions by the lot.
And Andy; Retaining his title as The People's Champion, keeping up with me, Peter K and Michael til 6 a.m sunday morning, then delivering mathces at such a level the next day.
And Chris, reaching the semi's, been delivering nothing but top performances after presenting himself to the KOA with a BANG in the last Voitsberg-WC.
And Thor, The Viking World Champion. Such a humble guy, travelling all the way from the USA every year to take part in the World Cup...

Dammit. I could go on, but that'll have to be in my story from the World Cup.

I bow my head in awe to you guys.

Thanks again, for making this such an epic adventure.

All hail Dagh, The 2017 Kick Off 2 World Champion!

Congrats to Dagh for winning his third WC title!

Fantastic performance throughout the weekend
and well fought in the final.

Also I'd like to praise Gianni for going to the final winning the first leg with a fighting style and in the second leg I was amazed by how
you uphold a high class attack with G.Nicholls. Even with such a setback you fought Dagh very well to the end.

Good performance by Chris which to him narrowly to the quarter final vs his eternal rival/friend Thor and the beat him on penalties (Couldn't have made that up).

Thanks everyone for attending and making this World Cup what it was. Means everything to see you all enjoying yourselves.

Congratulations to the great World Champion!

His performance all along the weekend was impressive, his semifinals where he was facing another world champion, were solved with amazing sufficiency, and then the final. What a final we watched! He got to beat a kick off god (well, the other one) as Gianni.

Enjoy your trophy!
