2016 IIHF World Championship in the Media
Another big sport event is over – 2016 Ice Hockey World Championship. Along with the rest of world we congratulate all the medalists. But let’s have a look what’s left behind the curtain.
We analised articles issued during the Championship and 2 days after it to see which of the 6 teams to go all the way through to the quarter-finals were most discussed by the media.
Media expectations on teams’ success are proved to be almost accurate. Czech pre-quarter- finals statistics was really promising, and Germany has a strong will to reach the ice hockey top – both reflected by the rating. While this year’s USA slip left the team behind even in the rating. But the strange thing is how mentions dramatically dropped after the final. Seems like results suspense got to the top just before the finals and then everybody only gave a sigh of relief celebrating privately.
We’ll leave the rest for you to see.
Stay tuned for new researches!
