The goals at the Steel Arena in Košice were not installed on the ice properly during the first matches of the 2011 Ice Hockey World Championship, the TASR newswire reported on Tuesday, May 3.
"The holes in the ice in which the goalposts were fixed were shifted three and seven centimetres off-centre respectively," the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) announced. According to the IIHF, the results of the matches in Košice remain valid, however. The goals have now been put in their proper places.
